A Blend of Straight Bourbon Whiskeys finished in Mizunara, French and Toasted American Oak.
Nose: Peaches and orange peel combine with fresh dandelion to create a fruity-floral base. Crème brûlée and lightly toasted oak complement, offering dynamic interplay against the more fruit-forward backdrop. While a hint of heat is present, the scents lean into the lighter side of the flavor spectrum, making for an overall aroma that feels soft, light, and enjoyable.
Palate: The aromas from the nose transfer well into the palate, maintaining a fruity-floral base with additional flavors layered in. Peach is most prominent, and it’s accented by a mixture of fig, nutmeg, crème brûlée, tempered oak, and Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal. The whiskey’s buttery mouthfeel delivers the flavors gently and substantially, though it drinks lower than its proof suggests. It’s a dangerously delicious palate that doesn’t offer much initial shock value, instead playing the long game with a marriage of flavors that amplifies on the backend.
Finish: Light nutmeg and a hint of fresh ginger set the finish in motion. Peaches, vanilla cream, and cinnamon graham cracker follow, held in place by an oak backbone. As the flavors fade, warming crème brûlée sweetness takes shape and increases with intensity. A touch of spice lingers. Its medium to long finish makes for a soothing end to a delicious, easy-drinking sip.
