  • Tasting Notes: This barrel is best described as deep and brooding. The nose is full of bourbon sweetness: caramel, vanilla bean, honey and light pastry, but then the brandy stomps in. It adds tobacco, decadent tannin and raisin, tobacco, a touch of balsamic, figs and jammy apricot. The palate is viscous and syrupy, rich and deceitful. It drinks with the richness of a high proof pour, but the ethanol is absent, left somewhere far in the past. It reminds me of the texture some of those dusty whiskeys have: low proof but rich and syrupy. Caramel candies, rich oak, pipe tobacco, red fruits and espresso, jammy stewed fruits and fig punch on the palate. The finish feels like it could carry forever, lacing together apricots, honey, espresso, fig reduction and a hint of balsamic once more. Beyond rich.
