Bourbon

Cask No. RW5.2

Tantalising to a T

Indiana, USA

We imagined perfume being sprayed out of an antique art deco atomizer, very fruity and very floral with hints of gorse, orange oil, pear drops and linseed oil on new cricket bats. On the palate plenty of spice, nutmeg and cinnamon but at the same time the sweetness of Tonka bean ice cream with Scotch caramel swirl. Water released exotic wood notes, red currants, dried cranberries, root beer and maple syrup. To taste hazelnut and Tonka bean scones with strawberries and clotted cream. The mash bill for this rye whiskey consists of 95% rye and 5% malted barley, matured in a #4 char new oak barrel with #2 char heads.
