Cyrus Noble Bourbon
Cyrus Noble // Kentucky, USA
Cyrus Noble is a whiskey brand that has been reintroduced by the folks who have owned the trademark since 1922, the Haas Brothers. Folks claim this brand was a favorite Kentucky bourbon for San Franciscans and is currently being sourced from Heaven Hill. It is a 5-year old bourbon and is bottled at 90 proof. If the price remains the same ($25-30), this is one you should be adding to your coffers, San Franciscan or not.

"The aroma of the bourbon is more on the leather and dried herbs side (think thyme) than the syrupy, sweet side. This is more of a masculine whiskey, perhaps not full-on-Marlboro-Man-masculine, but definitely on that side of the scale. Once in a while you catch a glimpse of some dark chocolate or a little sweetened vanilla cream, but mostly what stands out is that nothing really stands out...and that is not a negative. The flavors harmonize well, but the volume is turned down to a gentle hum. "
