Tasting Notes

"This is a young bourbon -- just 9 months for the youngest component of the blend -- but it's well made. It's sweet on the palate, with notes of cherry, vanilla, pipe tobacco, and butterscotch. Bottled at a generous 95 proof, it also carries a little heat and spice. It's enjoyable now, but may be even more interesting to watch if the distillery produces older expressions using this corn varietal."
