This cask-strength release from actors-turned whiskey blenders Paul Wesley and Ian Somerhalder has a nose with notes of banana bread, peaches, brown sugar, honey, oak, and a hint of tobacco leaves. The taste is thick, chewy, and spicy with tobacco, baking spices, a nice balance of dried fruits, and a hint of honey. The finish is long and spicy with a touch of cherries. (June, 2022)
