  • Tasting Notes: A first for our program, the combination of flavors on this release *just work*. Sweetness and complex flavors from the rum character, a punch of baking spice and amburana character from the, well, amburana, and plenty of lovely bourbon character from the bourbon. The nose is full of buttery toffee, sweet cream, a tickle of tropical mango, peach, pear and tangerine and classic amburana notes: ginger, baking spice, clove and pound cake. The palate is rich, super layered. Easily the most complex of this week's whiskeys the amburana is placed nicely, not too powerful and also keeps the rum in check: the whiskey is packed with flavor and there's a new note to find with each pour. Baking spice, ginger, clove and raisin bread kick off while stewed fruit, papaya, banana and mango pop in for a moment. Rich oak, pleasant spice and decadent richness despite a very drinkable 56%. Long finish, more oak and amburana show while rum and bourbon notes balance for a unique, balanced end.
