Spirit Works Four Grain Straight Bourbon
Bourbon — California, USA
Tasted May 23, 2020
Spirit Works Four Grain Straight Bourbon is distilled from organic grains in Sonoma County California. The bourbon is matured for a minimum of 4 years in 53-gallon New American Charred Oak casks. The mashbill is made of 60% corn with wheat, barley, and rye. It is pot distilled and blended using two bourbon formulas. Spirit Works Four Grain Straight Bourbon is bottled at 90 proof/45% ABV. On the label there is a space for the batch number, however, on the bottle I tasted the batch number was not written down. I also noticed a striking thickness in the texture on the palate which was somewhat disagreeable. However, the aromas and flavor of this well-crafted bourbon were astounding making it on par with some of the most well-known wheated bourbons. Color: Amber Honey On the nose are instant aromas of brown butter, crème brulee, caramel, cinnamon, cooking spices, and some floral notes. On the palate the spirit is rather thick and oily but has continuing notes of brown butter, creamy vanilla, charred oak, maple syrup, and baking spices. The finish is blatantly short with hints of cinnamon, vanilla, oak, burnt sugar, and more baking spices.
