Notes

Pine sap, honey, dark chocolate brownies, rum and raisin fudge, toffee, roasted hazelnuts and a fruit salad sprinkled with demerara sugar were just some of the descriptors mentioned. Tasting it, we all agreed, a creamy and custard like cherry clafoutis with sweet and spicy popcorn on the side. Water added an additional potpourri of aromas; rose petals, cigar boxes, vanilla pods and fennel seeds while on the palate awaited us pistachio ice cream with prunes in Armagnac and boozy banana bread with rum-soaked sultanas awaited us. The mash bill for this bourbon consists of 75% corn, 21% rye and 4% malted barley, matured in a #4 char new oak barrel with #2 char heads.
