Nose 👃: Hazelnut. Coffee bean. Orange zest. Buttercream frosting. Toffee.

Palate 👅: Buttercream frosting. Sweet tobacco. Dried cherry. Cinnamon. Honey.

This is absolutely delicious!   I loved the first release from Whiskey JYPSI, but the price was above the average consumer. Explorer is fantastic… impressed so that the average whiskey enthusiast can afford it.

We’ve all been burned by celebrity whiskey , but this definitely isn’t your typical celebrity whiskey.  Eric Church and Ari Sussman put together a bourbon that you want to drink because of its quality… not just the namesake.

I am highly excited about the future of the Explorer series… and what other woods they will introduce.
