Tasting Notes

"This whiskey has a unusual production process with its blending of older and younger bourbons and finishing in charred wine casks, but there's no arguing with the results. This is a bourbon with weight and woodiness, as well as notes of nuts, berries, and baking spice. Any influence of wine in the finishing casks is subtle without taking the whiskey in strange directions; this simply comes across as a good bourbon with a lot of depth, worthy of sipping."
