Expert Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
The phrase "top floor" evokes a sense of elevation, and Benchmark Top Floor Bourbon more than lives up to this aspiration. Crafted in the heartland of American whiskey—Kentucky—this bourbon embodies meticulous craftsmanship and a commitment to quality that sets it apart from the rest.
As you pour Benchmark Top Floor Bourbon into your glass, the aroma unfurls itself like a map of Kentucky's finest produce. Notes of caramelized sugar, toasted oak, and a touch of vanilla ascend from the glass, making it abundantly clear that you are in for an exceptional experience. An underpinning of subtle spice rounds out the bouquet, laying the groundwork for the palate to come.
From the first sip, the liquid coats your palate with a beautiful balance of sweet and savory elements. Creamy toffee, vanilla, and charred oak are the major players here. They harmonize impeccably with lighter notes of green apple and a whisper of mint, showcasing the bourbon’s nuanced complexity.
The finish is a masterclass in precision, bringing in warm spices such as cinnamon and nutmeg that gradually give way to a long, silky ending characterized by butterscotch and a wisp of smoky leather. It leaves you not only satisfied but also deeply contemplative, reflecting on the delicate intricacies that have just danced upon your palate.
Benchmark Top Floor Bourbon shines when paired with robust flavors like smoked meats or rich, chocolatey desserts. It is equally capable of standing alone, enjoyed neat or perhaps with a single ice cube to unleash its full aromatic potential.
