Amber color. Aromas of bread pudding with apples and raisins, toffee, and char-toasted banana bread with a slightly chewy, crisp, dryish medium-full body and a polished, interesting, medium-long pecan praline, chocolate ganache, custard, and pencil shavings finish. A rich, chewy, oaky bourbon that fills the mouth with flavor; if you’re seeking intensity and brawn, this is one for you.

Blended Straight Bourbon is a blend of straight bourbon whiskies with an added allowance to contain coloring and/or flavoring, something that is not traditionally allowed in the straight bourbon category. In addition to this allowance, a Blended Straight Bourbon's components do not need to be distilled in the same state as one another.
