Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
Pouring the whiskey into a glass reveals an alluring deep amber hue, indicative of its time in carefully selected charred American oak barrels. The liquid's viscosity is evident through the slow and deliberate legs that meander down the glass walls when swirled.
The aroma is a compelling melange of candied fruit, toasted oak, and a touch of smoke. Behind these primary notes lie the subtleties of sweet corn, vanilla, and a slight undertone of charcoal—the signature of its charcoal filtering process.
Upon the first sip, the whiskey presents a perfectly balanced tapestry of flavors. Rich caramel and vanilla meld harmoniously with more nuanced flavors of toasted almond and a trace of spice. The whiskey's maturity is reflected in the complex layering of oak and leather notes that make brief yet impactful appearances as it dances on the palate.
The finish is luxuriously long and warming, characterized by lingering notes of dried fruit, sweet tobacco, and a final whisper of charcoal and spice. It's a sumptuous finale that encourages thoughtful savoring.
The whiskey has a silky, almost velvety texture. Despite its robust flavor profile, it possesses an exceptional smoothness, no doubt a result of the meticulous charcoal mellowing process unique to Tennessee whiskey.
