Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
In the glass, the bourbon exhibits a captivating dark amber color, tinged with ruby-red hues—a nod to its Port finishing process.
The bouquet is a kaleidoscope of aromas, blending the classic vanilla and caramel notes of American bourbon with darker, fruity undertones reminiscent of black cherries and plum. A soft background of oak and spices adds another dimension to the nose.
Upon tasting, the initial flavors of caramel and toasted vanilla are augmented by the sweet, jammy notes of the Port barrels. Fruits like blackberries and dark cherries are present, accompanied by a subtle layer of chocolate and nuts. The presence of oak and a hint of leather give it a traditional bourbon backbone.
The finish is luxuriously long, characterized by lingering fruity sweetness and a dash of spice. The Port influence is evident but does not overpower, allowing the robust nature of the bourbon to shine through.
Medium to full-bodied, the mouthfeel is rich and velvety, coating the palate in a comforting embrace that makes this bourbon a pleasure to sip.

Not too overwhelming or peppery with a nice smooth finish. Have shared this around to raves;almost as if it were an Irish whiskey in some respects. Definitely refilling this order!
While I love finished Scotch, I'm not as big a fan of finished bourbon. However, I really like this Woodinville port finished bourbon. This is my second bottle and every bit as good as the first. Proof might be a little low but maybe it wouldn't work as well at high proof. Def better than Angles Envy finished bourbon.
