Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
Pouring a luxuriously deep amber hue, this 6-year-old bourbon captures the aesthetic essence of maturity and complexity. The liquid has a slightly viscous quality, indicating a rich, full-bodied experience.
The olfactory profile of this spirit is a complex interplay between caramelized sugars, roasted nuts, and a medley of dark fruits like blackberries and cherries. These notes are enriched by the fragrance of freshly baked bread, a tribute to its sweet mash origin.
Wilderness Trail 6 Year Bourbon offers a rich, textured palate characterized by its initial burst of caramel and molasses, rapidly followed by vibrant spices—think black pepper and cloves. On the mid-palate, an ensemble of toasted oak, vanilla, and a touch of cocoa introduces additional layers of complexity.
The finish is long and warming, featuring a crescendo of spice that transitions into a mellow and refined oakiness. Subtle hints of tobacco and leather are detectable, rounding out the experience.
The mouthfeel is rich and robust, contributing to an all-encompassing sensorial experience. The high-proof character is remarkably well-integrated, yielding a smooth and enjoyable journey from beginning to end.
