Tasting Notes

"Though aged in bourbon barrels, this release from Courage and Conviction doesn't take on too much color, pouring a golden straw in hue. It's light-bodied and approachable, with notes of pear, subtle vanilla, and salted caramel. That hint of salinity continues on the finish along with a dry touch of cacao."
