Overall: "Finished with a kiss of apple" - This is the Clyde May's way...but just enough to wet the whistle and not overpower the bold flavors of leather and tobacco. For a 120 Proof whiskey, this is incredibly approachable and a fantastic sipper. The apple on the nose is even more evident with just a drop of water. Although I enjoy my whiskey straight and neat, I was very happy with adding a drop to bring out the nose a bit.
Overall, I can sit down with this and enjoy a light to medium cigar on the back deck and not plan on moving for about an hour. Like I mentioned, a fantastic sipper with so much to offer. Just be careful when standing up as that 120 proof might surprise you even more...
