The nose has buttersctoch, oak and rye spice. The palate opens with spice and honey, which grows into an almost cloying candy-like sweetness which dominates the rest of the palate. The finish sees the return of some spice and herbal notes.

 

This had some complexity in the beginning but it was drowned out by the sweetness. It's very drinkable, but overly sweet.

Nose deep caramel with botanical notes, very Heaven Hill tasting
Palate: Sweet, grassy notes, nutty, then acidic; water bings out honey, pine and nice earthy notes.

Finish: Sweet nuttiness yields to an earthiness

 

This is a very nice MGP bourbon that tastes older than its 8 years.

 

 Good stuff!

Nose: First whiff is a chocolate scented scratch 'n sniff - I kid you not (I could never forget that smell), followed by grain and herbal notes. Palate: Sort of a salty with grainy notes, followed by Tootsie Rolls.

Finish: Grainy with strong boricha (barley tea) notes 

 

Super-weird, daring and curious but not ulitmantely succesful.

n: raspberry, clove, earthy oak, and resin. Brown sugar, cereal, and hint of black plum.

t: golden ripe fruit, peach, and tons of minty rye spice. Tannic oak in middle that smooths to dill and vanilla in the middle. Menthol is strong with cherry and cedar at the finish. Nice mouthfeel, but astringent flavor throughout.
 
A bit of water reduces the sharpness in the burn, but lost the minty spice. [B/B-]

It''s got a nice peatiness on the nose with some white wine notes. The palate opens with strong peat followed by a fruity sweetness leading into a long peated finish. 

 

As with most Port Charlotte, the peat is very sharp and not necesarilly integrated with the other flavors, but it's bold and fun.
