Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
Upon pouring, Calumet 8 Year Bourbon displays an opulent amber hue with golden undertones, a testament to its well-aged character. The viscosity is evident through the formation of slow-moving legs on the glass, indicating a rich, complex body.
The olfactory experience is an alluring blend of classic bourbon aromatics. Subdued vanilla meets honey, toasted oak, and a touch of caramel, building a highly nuanced nose. Slight undertones of dried fruit and leather complete this complex aromatic profile, inviting the imbiber to explore further.
From the first sip, Calumet 8 Year Bourbon is clearly in a class of its own. Sublime notes of caramelized sugar and vanilla open up the palate, followed by the richness of dark chocolate and cinnamon. A dollop of butterscotch and a whisper of toasted almonds further enrich the mouthfeel, making for an incredibly rounded and full-bodied sip.
The finish is both long-lasting and memorable, encompassing a warm and slightly spicy crescendo. Lingering notes of oak and brown sugar are punctuated by a mild tobacco smokiness, culminating in a finish that is both balanced and elegant.
Calumet 8 Year Bourbon is a transcendent bourbon that marries complexity and balance, delivering a finely-tuned symphony of flavors that elevate it above the ordinary. Its unique blend of character, age, and artisanal quality makes it a must-have selection for any bourbon enthusiast. At Third Base Market & Spirits, we are proud to offer this exemplar of bourbon artisanship, perfect for sipping neat or as the foundation of a sumptuous cocktail.
This is my new favorite. Full-bodied but super smooth with no burn. Just a hint of sweet but in a good way. Superb!
This is one of the silkiest, lightest whiskies I've tried. You scarcely notice you're drinking it, even neat at room temperature (that's how I take all whiskey). It has some caramel, almond, and vanilla to it, and, without being sweet or cloying, shows a bit of birthday cake on the palate. Very nice, easily repeatable, and makes me want to explore their other offerings.
