Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
The bourbon boasts a rich mahogany color with deep amber undertones, indicative of its unique finishing process in toasted barrels. It gleams with a thick, slow-moving viscosity, inviting the drinker to delve into its layers.
Upon nosing, one is immediately met with a wave of charred oak and warm spices like cinnamon and clove. Underlying this robust aroma are subtler nuances of toasted marshmallow, dried apricot, and a gentle smoky essence, giving a nod to its toasted barrel finishing.
Nulu Toasted Barrel Bourbon unfolds dramatically on the palate. A rush of dark fruit flavors—fig, black cherry, and a touch of plum—welcomes the first sip. These rich tones are then juxtaposed by notes of almond, dark chocolate, and espresso. The toasted barrel introduces an intricate overlay of vanilla and caramel, skillfully intertwined with the more traditional bourbon flavors.
The finish is prolonged and complex, starting with a hint of dark chocolate bitterness, followed by a warmth that spreads across the palate. Notes of toasted nuts and dried fruit linger, echoing the intricate characteristics encountered throughout the tasting experience.
The mouthfeel is luxuriously creamy and full-bodied, thanks in part to its slightly elevated alcohol content. This rich texture allows the flavors to cling to the palate, making for a particularly enduring finish.
