Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
The liquid showcases a deep, luxuriant mahogany hue with a rich, full-bodied viscosity, evident through its languid legs that slowly cascade down the glass when swirled.
The bouquet opens with robust notes of dark fruit, namely cherry and plum, seamlessly merging with nuances of seasoned oak, leather, and tobacco. A tinge of cinnamon spice elevates the overall complexity, creating a warm and inviting olfactory experience.
Upon sipping, the whiskey bursts forth with an impressive tapestry of flavors: dark caramel, vanilla, and toffee come forward first, harmonizing with the darker tones of chocolate and espresso. Following closely are spicy elements like black pepper and cinnamon, which lend depth and complexity to the mix. Despite its high proof, the alcohol is well-integrated, not overwhelming the palate but rather enhancing the whiskey’s layered flavor profile.
The finish is exceptionally long-lasting and memorable, characterized by a sweet-smoky balance. Notes of toasted oak and a hint of dark chocolate linger on the palate, making for a fitting conclusion to a symphonic tasting experience.
The texture of Kentucky Owl Batch 12 is velvety and substantial, almost chewy. This dense mouthfeel allows the myriad flavors to unfurl gradually over time, rendering each sip a revelation.
