OVERALL: It starts with a whiff of pine lumber—a surprising yet pleasant note discernible in other Still Austin releases—forest floor, sage, and some rosemary, all intriguing and without shortcomings. There are some caramel notes backed by toasted oak, citrus peel, and spice. On the palate, you realize this is a good, gutsy whiskey that drinks softer than its 118 proof yet well beyond its age. Spice tingles upfront before warming the whole palate evenly. Cooked tree fruits, red fruits and dark chocolate left in its wake make this a delightful pour. This is a terrific whiskey whose age should be ignored.
