Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
In the glass, this whiskey exhibits a lustrous, dark amber color that borders on mahogany, indicative of its concentrated flavors. Swirling the liquid reveals elegant legs, foretelling a whiskey of substantive body and depth.
The initial nose is one of delightful complexity— a robust array of caramel, dark fruit, and baking spices set against a backdrop of oak char and tobacco leaf. Subtle notes of vanilla and toasted nuts emerge as the spirit aerates, adding further layers of aroma.
A sip of Clyde May’s Special Reserve 110 Proof rewards the palate with an immediate burst of flavor. On the onset, rich molasses and brown sugar flavors are met with an assertive spice kick—think nutmeg and peppercorn—thanks to its higher proof. This is followed by mid-palate notes of dried dark fruits like fig and black cherry, which serve to balance out the fiery kick.
The finish is long-lasting and robust, characterized by a sustained, warming sensation typical of higher proof spirits. It leaves behind a delightful aftertaste of spiced apple and leather, punctuated by smoky oak undertones that linger in the mouth.
Clyde May's Special Reserve 110 Proof Whiskey serves as a masterful blend of tradition and intensity, encapsulating a spectrum of flavors that dance across the palate. It is an eloquent expression of American whiskey craftsmanship, offering a multifaceted experience that becomes richer with each sip.
