Pinhook Bohemian Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted September 11, 2021Nose: Walnuts, fresh cut grass, cloves, and caramel. More floral on the nose than sweet. Palate: Green tea, walnuts, orange zest, slight caramel which provides a bit of sweetness towards the end. Unfortunately not a fan of this. A very floral heavy bourbon that has a bit of caramel sweetness on the finish which seems to be its only redeeming quality to me.
