Over the years the farm took home eight Kentucky Derbies and two Triple Crowns. In reality, this is a(nother) sourced whiskey from an undisclosed distillery put in a pretty bottle.

"The nose is dry and hay-like and seems to come from a heavily-charred barrel. The aromas are like if you are making a rich simple-syrup and trying to caramelize the sugars a little bit for deeper flavor. But in this case, you turned your back on the pot and the sugars burned. Back to the juice- slightly mellow after the burned flavor. Slight alcohol burn on the finish. Perhaps you should reserve this particular bottling for infusing with apples and cinnamon. "
