Tasting Notes

"Maple butter and vanilla are in the forefront of the whiskey while leather and a touch of char smoke play in the background. Rich and with smattering of cherry fruit, this whiskey isn't asking much from you from an intellectual standpoint. If you prefer a softer, sweeter style of bourbon, Barterhouse is for you. If you like things a bit more rugged and spicy, buy Rhetoric."
