Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
The liquid gold in the glass boasts a deep, amber hue, testament to its extended maturation in new charred American oak barrels. A gentle swirl leaves a curtain of slow-dripping tears, suggesting a rich and velvety texture.
The olfactory experience begins with a complex bouquet of caramelized oak and sweet vanilla. Subtler notes of dark fruits—think figs and dried cherries—mingle with hints of toasted grain and a gentle overlay of rye spiciness. A whiff of leather adds an old-world complexity, indicative of its 9 years in oak barrels.
First impressions are dominated by an intensely rich caramel sweetness and robust oakiness, very much in line with its aromatic profile. The spiciness of the rye grain—apparent but not overwhelming—creates a perfect foil for the initial sweetness. Mid-palate, nuances of dark chocolate and espresso emerge, providing a sophisticated complexity.
Long and resonating, the finish leaves an enduring warmth and a balanced melding of its flavor constituents: oak, spice, and sweetness. The higher proof lends itself to an especially lingering finish, leaving traces of baking spices and a mild tobacco-like bitterness that beckons another sip.
The high proof, combined with the 9-year aging process, results in a full-bodied, almost chewy mouthfeel. This is a bourbon that demands to be savored, with a velvety texture that coats the palate and allows each nuanced flavor to be fully appreciated.
