Tasting Notes and Technical Description:

Visual Appearance: When poured into a glass, this straight bourbon showcases a rich, golden-amber color that suggests a well-balanced maturation process. The legs that descend down the glass are moderately thick, indicating a medium to full-bodied whiskey and hinting at a rich, mouth-coating experience.

Nose (Aroma): The aroma is an intriguing blend of traditional bourbon characteristics with some unique twists. Notes of caramel, vanilla, and baked apple come forth initially, followed by subtler layers of toasted oak and spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. There's also a hint of herbal elements—perhaps a touch of mint or sage—that adds complexity.

Palate (Taste): The first sip offers a beautiful array of flavors, affirming its visual and olfactory promises. Vanilla and caramel are upfront, but not overwhelmingly so. These sweeter elements are balanced by spicier undertones—black pepper, a touch of clove, and rye spice. As it settles on the palate, a certain fruitiness emerges, bringing to mind baked stone fruits like peach or plum cobbler.

Finish: The finish is smooth and satisfying with a lingering warmth that's not overly hot, despite the higher ABV. It leaves you with a balanced blend of sweet and spicy notes with a subtle, oaky dryness that invites another sip.

Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel is robust but not overly oily, a testament to its careful crafting. Even at a higher ABV, the whiskey is smooth and rounded, making it both a delightful sipper and a robust candidate for high-end cocktails.

This product, like many in the Smoke Wagon line, seems to sell out almost as quickly as it becomes available. Great entry level choice from Smoke Wagon. I look forward to trying more of their brown water. Third Base has done a GREAT JOB sending me my orders!
