Nose: There is a lot of corn upfront, and as the bottle opens up, that corny, young nose fades quite a bit. Lots of honey and oak start to show up in the nose, with some sharp spice. Cinnamon pie and snickerdoodle cookies come to mind.
Sip: Good texture, with a quick sweetness showing up in the front. Caramelized sugar, thick warm honey, candied pecans and lots more of that sweet corn. There is some nice rye spice, like a spicy baking cinnamon, some cloves and a nutty back end. Some oaky vanilla notes finish the sip in the back palate.
Finish: The finish is decent. Not too long, not short but not very complex either. Classic bourbon tastes are there, but the most prominent tastes to me are the sweetness and the corn, with the spice and oak a distant second.
In the glass, BMH gets a little more complex with a couple minutes. That upfront sweetness hides and you get more of the oak and rye spice that really complements the remaining corn and sweet tones of the bourbon.
