A highly regarded new arrival onto the Bourbon scene (just check out those scores in Jim Murray's whisky bible) from Hye, Texas.
Aged in small 15 gallon barrels (normally 53 gallon in Kentucky) and with the heat of Texas this all adds to the speeding up of the maturation process and at just 3 years old this packs a lot of punch beyond its youth.
Made from White corn, winter wheat and barley.
Nose: Freshly cobbed corn, cornbread, peanut butter, sappy cedar wood, clovce, charred orange, leather, vanillin oak, dark chocolate, pumpkin pie.
Palate: Rich buttery corn, toffee, toasted pecan nuts, clove, peppery oak, waxy orange, vanilla syrup, creamy wheat and biscuity barley.
Finish: Clove honey, peppery oak, buttery corn, charred vanilla, aromatic vanilla, orange, pumpkin pie and pecan nuts.
Plenty going on here and manages to pack in more flavours (and more unusual ones at that) than most bourbon twice the age, well worth spending the extra $ on to try something quite unique from a state not known for its Bourbon.
