Cannot come up with flavor notes, but the profile is unexpected and delightful! It’s got a good aroma of spices on the nose, and then a really soft and balanced palate.
Soft peat upfront on the nose but I perceive it more as smoke on the palette. Underlying sweetness is there along with an oaky char and muted dried fruit flavors. The complexity from the blended components (Bourbon, Rye and Scotch) carries through to the final product but none at full intensity.

It’s got a little more intensity than I’d expect for something aged so long, but fairly balanced otherwise.
This Yellow Spot is easy on the nose with soft scents of dried fruit and a hard to specify 'sweetness'. Not exactly honeysuckle or vanilla but not too far off of those...definitely a little floral. The taste is amped up a bit by the alcohol. There is a little sharpness from the 96 proof whiskey but the flavors that settle out are pretty close to the nose. There is a little more vanilla, maybe a little (very little) oak with a touch of sherry sweetness. The flavors don't linger, however...leaving me reaching for more.
