Nose: Wet cigar tobacco, dark chocolate and cinnamon. More pipe tobacco with an herbaceous spicy quality.
Palate: Wow. This is a big bold bad ass in your face whiskey yet it is incredibly smooth. Chewy, rich and full bodied, the flavors double down from nose to palate. Turkey funk, check. Did I mention the tobacco?
Finish: Dark chocolate cigar wraps. Absolute literal translation from nose to palate to finish with a long lengthy midrange. This is why I drink Turkey, to feel wiser.
