Instead, aromatic campfire from the char, vanilla, pecan, leather and sweet tobacco are brought forward to enhance similar notes already present in the whiskey."
On the nose, there is broken in leather, sassafras, birch beer, and wintergreen. The palate has notes of tobacco, vanilla, lemon, brown sugar, cocoa powder, and mint. The finish is long with notes of cherry, nutmeg, honey and vanilla."
