This medium-full bodied Bourbon has a bouquet of vanilla, caramel and cherry. The spicy kick of a high rye content is balanced by sweet, smooth corn and the unmistakably silky viscosity of organic Washington soft white winter wheat (grown in Waitsburg, WA). Aged initially in ten-gallon American oak casks and then matured in 53-gallon barrels, this meticulously handcrafted Bourbon displays notes of brown sugar and maple syrup without the woody harshness that can result from extended micro-barrelling. Its mellow tannins and complex layers unfold into a finish of buttery oak, toffee and again the brightness of fresh cherries.
"Lively, fruity, spicy floral aromas of creme brulee, spice nut cake, orange marmalade, and delicate perfume with a silky, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a warming, intricate, long toffee, brown and peppery spices, and minerals finish."
