Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
Pouring Fort Hamilton Double Barrel Bourbon into a glass reveals a luscious mahogany color, with glimmers of burnt orange reflecting off its depths. The clarity and richness of the hue underscore the double-barrel aging process and the fine grain selection.
The olfactory experience opens with a complex bouquet of caramelized vanilla, toasted coconut, and a light sprinkling of nutmeg. Following closely are undercurrents of dark fruits—think fig and black currant—offset by a delicate floral note reminiscent of lavender.
The first sip is a revelation. The bourbon is robust yet rounded, with pronounced flavors of caramel and maple syrup at the forefront. These sweet elements are perfectly counterbalanced by the spiciness of cinnamon and white pepper, the markers of a well-made bourbon. The second maturation in the fresh oak barrels brings an additional layer of complexity, introducing flavors of dark chocolate and a hint of espresso.
The finish is exceptionally long-lasting and multi-layered. It begins with the warmth of spicy oak and evolves into a softer, velvety ending with undertones of honey and almond. The final note is a lingering taste of charred oak and tobacco, a gentle nod to the bourbon’s intricate aging process.
Fort Hamilton Double Barrel Bourbon, now available at Third Base Market & Spirits, is an opulent experience that marries heritage and modernity in a glass.
