    The nose has lots of complexity, polished wood, fruits (ripe strawberries) vanilla and at 50% ABV the alcohol can be detected as well.  The taste is powerful and warming.  More juicy fruits and sweet like black cherries and chocolate.  Really rich like a liqueur chocolate.  The finish is quite peppery and dry with some tobacco notes.  This is one of my favorite bourbons so far, absolutely delicious.
