Tasting Notes: The nose pops with initial notes of black pepper, vanilla, and leather. The taste balances between spice and sweetness. There are great pipe tobacco and toasted coconut note. It has a medium finish and draws out the clover, cinnamon, and dried cocoa from the taste. This reminds me of an 8-10-year bourbon from a major distillery.
