Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
On the visual spectrum, the whiskey possesses a burnished copper hue with a glow akin to amber, offering the eyes a preview of the matured experience that is about to unfold.
The olfactory experience is complex, mirroring the years it has spent in maturation. Initial notes are a symphony of dried fruits—dates and figs—accompanied by a whiff of tobacco leaf. Underlying layers of cinnamon and caramel arise with a subtle hint of smokiness, adding to the already intricate landscape of scents.
Upon sipping, your palate is immediately greeted by a rich texture and well-rounded mouthfeel. There’s an initial sweetness of dark fruits and maple syrup, quickly transitioning to more mature flavors of leather, oak, and a subtle earthiness. Spices like cinnamon and clove dance around the periphery, adding complexity and zest but not overpowering the experience.
The finish is exceedingly long and evolving. There is a lingering warm spice, accompanied by a smoky undertone and the resurgent sweet fruitiness, all coalescing into a harmonious ending.
Hooten Young 15 Year Whiskey is an expedition into the breadth and depth of what American whiskey can achieve. Its 15-year aging process has resulted in a layered and sophisticated spirit, providing a grand narrative that unfolds slowly, sip by revered sip. Ideal for contemplative evenings or celebratory toasts, this offering available at Third Base Market & Spirits should be savored and appreciated as a monumental achievement in distillation and aging.
