This very rare, limited edition bourbon takes generations of distilling know-how to produce. Only the most careful and expensive distilling method can be used to create a whiskey as special as this one. Each barrel ages for 23 years and is carefully selected from the heart of the warehouse. This whiskey should be enjoyed neat.

Early aromas of caramel and cream with soft notes of oak, nuts and leather. Features a sweet taste composed of vanilla, maple and honey joined by complimentary flavors of citrus and spice. Has a long lasting oaky finish, along with many of the early flavors.

The initial aromatic burst is chockfull of pork sausage and sweet spice scents; with aeration the aroma becomes a stately, mature, fully integrated whiskey bouquet, emitting scents of dark coffee, marzipan, praline, caramel corn and oaky vanillin. Palate entry and midpalate are melded, elegant, sap-like and sweet. Finishes warm, tangy, sweet and resiny. An American distilling masterpiece.
