    Tasting notes:
    When sipped neat the 2 year old bourbon dominates the palate with rye and oak. With a spoonful of water or two the rye backs off and notes from the older bourbons come through. Carmel, vanilla, and honey on the front of the pallet and then the oak and a smoother rye spice take over on the finish. This is a nice well rounded bourbon full of flavor.
