Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
Held up to the light, the bourbon reveals a luminous and deep amber coloration tinged with hues of rich mahogany—indicative of its time spent in charred new American oak barrels.
An elaborate bouquet unfolds with complexity and nuance. Aromas of vanilla and caramel segue into spiced undertones of clove and cinnamon. Layers of sweet corn and toasted oak emanate from the glass, framed by subtler hints of dark chocolate and ripe stone fruits.
The mouthfeel is velvety yet robust, affirming this bourbon's substantial character. Primary flavors of caramel and vanilla reappear, now accented by a tannic oakiness that adds structure without overwhelming. As you savor, distinctive secondary notes—brown sugar, tobacco, and a touch of pecan—commingle to elevate the tasting journey, clearly showcasing the bourbon’s Texan roots.
Garrison Brothers Single Barrel Bourbon offers a lengthy, warm finish, in which smoky oak flavors dominate initially, eventually yielding to a softer, sweeter layer of butterscotch and crème brûlée that lingers satisfyingly on the palate.
