$230. 00
$2760.00 Dozen
ABV: 45%
One of those whiskeys that you don’t hear too much about - reportedly a sourced Bourbon, but information is scant. Good reviews. Very limited stocks.

Tasting note: Polished topaz. An unusually fruity edge to the nose, reminiscent of ‘Rock’n’Rye’, with orange peel, rock candy and cough drops; Air contact dries the nose evoking oak shavings and hints of dried mango. Nice depth with lively spices, soft peachy fruitiness and a woody, fresh finish. Pepper warmth and vanilla through the aftertaste. Robust & distinctive. Would make a great Old Fashioned. 45% Alc./Vol.

Other reviews... Rich amber color. Aromas of spicy nougat, sarsaparilla candy, and creme brulee with a supple, fruity-yet-dry medium-to-full body and a warming, peppery spice and pencil shaving accented finish. Nice intensity of flavor that will stand up to cocktails. Silver Medal / Highly Recommended 88 points - www.tastings.com
