Tennessee Bourbon Whiskey 10 Years Old
Old Forge Distillery
Peggy Noe Stevens 8.5
Nose: Bready yeast.Clove spice with big cherry notes surrounding in smouldering embers. Fennel and caramel appear at the right pace.
Palate: Beautiful tannins and caramel sweep your palate, with jammy accents of fruit. There is a silky texture, but bold and honey rich.
Finish: Medium length finish that evolves gracefully, but enticing and balanced.
Comments: Love the quiet storm of tannins and honey combo, perfect compliment.
Susan Reigler 8.2
Nose: Sweet cherries, vanilla pudding, some cinnamon and honey. A few minutes in the glass and oak tannins emerge.
Palate: Very grain forward with cornbread dough followed by fruit, spice, and some nuts. Much drier.
Finish: Quite long, with pepper outlasting vanilla and oak.
Comments: Quite pleasant. Leave it in the glass for a while and the grain becomes less pronounced and a little bit of smoke begins to come forward.
