Bourbon — Kentucky, USA
Reviewed March 13, 2022 (edited April 23, 2023)
The nose starts with malted chocolate, coffee, caramelized fruit, charred oak and a bit of astringency. Overall the nose is pretty soft but it all melds together very nicely and is quite unlike your usual New Riff. The palate is somewhat rich that gradually reaches the corners of the mouth with a nice wave malted milk, chocolate, coffee grounds and some hints of vanilla, charred oak and some astringency. It’s just as subtle as the nose was but is rather delicious and intensifies as you chew on it. The finish is medium and has a lingering vanilla chocolate note with some hints of malt and a short lived astringency. It leaves behind a pleasantly creamy finish that definitely leaves you wanting more.
