Amber color. Fairly intense praline, cinnamon, apple, and vanilla aromas. Closed at first, then opens quickly with big alcohol heat, orange peel, and spice (or is that more heat?). Transitions into oaky warmth. The corn is evident here. The finish is big (high alcohol level probably helps here) and dry with black pepper notes. Lasts 1-2 minutes. For this proof, the heat is balanced, but intense. You may prefer to open it up with some spring water. Tasted 4/11/2007.
