We're prepping for our move to rural southwestern Wisconsin over the summer; it'll be a big shift, from life in a small apartment on the Northwest Side of Chicago to living on a micro farm outside of a small town. A good change in many ways, but a big one just the same. I decided to prep my palate by trying out the most well-regarded Wisconsin whiskey, produced within an hour or so of where we'll be living. The nose is immediate - this is a really fresh, crisp caramel covered apple sprinkled lightly with spice. Vanilla comes in next. The palate is remarkably smooth for only being a five year old bourbon; lush and buttery, with dulce de leche, apple, corn pops cereal, vanilla, a hint of cinnamon, and a dark chocolate dusted finish. If life in Wisconsin is as good as this bourbon, we're in for a great time!

5.0 out of 5 stars
Swirl the whiskey in the glass and check out the deep orangish amber. Nosing it brings an aroma of chocolate, toffee, caramel and a hint of sweet fruit.
Lifting to the lips introduces custard, crème brulé, brioche, orange and toffee that spreads over the palate. Then, the custard swings back again to give a long, lasting finish.
This is the best Bourbon you've never heard of! Cheers!
