Glossy with a port wine-kissed mahogany.
Nose: The port is noticeable from the get-go, as is stewed fruit – earthy and sweet. Another layer of lighter sweetness brought to mind gummy bears, followed by subtle spice.
Palate: Layered and complex. Stone fruit baked in a dough (like traditional hamantaschen or Pueblo prune pies). The sweetness isn’t cloying, but rather playful and rich and it dissipates nicely. A bit of oak and warm char balances the finish. Whiskey Wash
The exact mash bill isn’t disclosed, but is at least 51% corn. The whiskey is aged in new, charred American white oak barrels, with no age statement specifically available though it reportedly falls in the 4.5-5.5 year range. The port barrels used for finishing come from Virginia and Portugal, made using American and French Limousin oak, and the whiskey ages in these from 3-6 months before blending to create the bourbon to be bottled.
