Birthday Bourbons



2015 Birthday Bourbon

This vintage had experienced an unusually long, 6-day fermentation; the resulting spirit when barreled was matured in the same warehouse location, near a window and close to a heat cycling duct, exposing the barrels to very high temperatures. This maturation resulted in extremely robust and intense wood-derived characteristics.

Tasting Notes

Color

Orange-tinted honey.

Aroma

Layers of oak, both resinous and toasted, merge with a medley of tobacco leaf, dry herbs and nut character.

Taste

Warm mulled spice and nutty spice notes, all subtly sweetened with a touch of honey.

Finish

Warming and dry with a long, smooth, nutty character.
