Product Description

Featured in the 1001 whiskies you must try before you die book

The 2012 edition of the Whisky Bible Awarded this the Best Single Barrel Bourbon of the Year, in the 18 years and over catagory.

Nose: Buttery dark corn, sweet orange, charred chocolate, rich mocha, nougart, creme brulee, old fashioned toffee, sugared almonds.

Palate: Fat and juicy buttery corn, orange fondant, chocolate, aromatic spices.

Finish: Rich chocolate, buttery popcorn, orange curd and clove spice.

A mellow Straight Bourbon that is a huge step up from the 12 year old in terms of depth and richness and not as sweet and with age specifications being dropped by this brand it might be an idea to get this before they run out of old stock or the price doubles?
