This Bourbon is a blend of 5,7 and 8 year old Bourbons from Kentucky and Tennessee. Produced from a mashbill of 70% corn and the balance a mix of rye and wheat. The Bourbon was finished in Napa Cabernet barrels before bottling at 42%. Only a little over 10,000 bottles were produced.
Evan's tasting note:
Nose: Vanilla and hibiscus, a combination of Juicy Fruit and Wrigley's Spearmint Gum. Also lime zest, cherries, cinnamon hearts, marmalade, toffee and candied bacon.
Palate: Lime Pith, marmalade again. Some acidity helps bring out light spice notes. Oranges and cloves, nutmeg and cinnamon, hints of balsamic vinegar without going too over the top.
Finish: Faint notes of dried fruits (apricots and dates) mingle with the wood spices nicely.
Comment: Fairly robust and complex for 42% ABV. Nice complexity. The wine cask finishing works well on this Bourbon.
Producer Tasting Note: "Aromatically intriguing with brown sugar, maple, caramelized oak, exotic spices, orange peel and campfire. The palate is velvety smooth, rich and packed with flavors of brown spice, honey and intense caramel. The complexity is apparent and the finish is persistent, long lasting and focused."
