Nose: Buttery caramel. Like the small batch BiB cranked up to 12. Vanilla. Molasses. Delicious. It’s sweet and ever so slightly spicey. Not at all like a Booker’s.

Taste: Sweet, complex. Vanilla. nougat and cream. spice and molasses. More cream.

Finish: Long, well blended and not overtly rough, even given the proof.

Overall: This met and exceeded expectations I had. Good all around product well enhanced by elevated proof.
