Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
In the glass, this bourbon boasts a deep amber hue, displaying a luscious richness that can be attributed to its double oak maturation. It offers thick, slow-moving legs, indicating a rich and textured mouthfeel to come.
The initial aroma is a seductive blend of classic bourbon notes: caramel, vanilla, and charred oak make their presence immediately known. Subtle undertones of dark fruit, baking spices, and leather contribute a complex backdrop to the sweet and woody mainstays.
The complexity of the aroma is fully realized upon tasting. Notes of toasted oak and caramel dominate the entry, augmented by hints of dark chocolate and dried fruits. Subtler spices—namely, cinnamon and clove—pepper the mid-palate, offering a rounded, multi-layered flavor experience.
The finish is exceptionally smooth, thanks in large part to its second maturation. Warm, oaky undertones linger alongside a soft sweetness, closing out each sip in a memorable way.
The double oak treatment gives this bourbon a full, yet not overwhelming, body. It coats the mouth in a velvety layer that helps extend the various flavor notes for several enjoyable moments.
