The nose has notes of magic marker, solvent, and some fruit juice. There's some vanilla and other notes, but every time they try to come out they're beaten down by the chemical notes. The palate starts with light, sweet notes; it's watery. It has some oak, but it develops quickly into bitterness and trails off with chemical solvent notes. The finish is bitter and chemically.

N: Ceral, oats, christmas, cinnamon, raisin, raspberry and sour plum

P: Sweet yet tangy sherry fruit

F: Lingering sour cherry

 

There are flashes of tired sherry notes on the nose and finish.  But it doesnt detract from the enjoyment.

n:  Cherry Kirsch in a metal thermos.

 

p:  Dipping a cedar rod in sherry and sucking out the juice.  A bit heavier on the black pepper and light on the sweetness than usual, but still a solid sherry bomb as usual.

Deep amber. My notes are short and simple, but this is one of the best bourbons I have ever had. Nose is charming, oozing with vanilla and a back-end with plenty of spice. The palate brings a non-astringent wood and brings the heat. I wish I had written more (too busy enjoying this one), but having tasted on multiple occasions, this only seems to get better. A-/A [8/22/14]
