Peggy Noe Stevens

Nose
Vanilla pudding and shreds of coconut. Herbaceous sage with clover honey. Toasted breadcrumbs with marshmallow and a little milk chocolate.

Palate
Sugared dates and earthy leather with banana, crushed almond and ginger.

Finish
Seductive spice and barrel flavor for days. Patience on the heat will pay off.

Comments
Remember that big block of ice in your fridge? Put it in this Bourbon and allow it to slightly melt in order to tame the spice.

Score

8.4


Susan Reigler

Nose
Oak, corn and some warm grass. Reminiscent of being in a old barn loft. Then vanilla shows up.

Palate
Caramel, vanilla, warm cooked cereal. Underlying notes of mixed nuts and stewed fruit.   

Finish
Sweet nuts and oak. It dries to tannic oak with some dark, dried fruit. Warm and oaky, but not bitter.

Comments
Add a splash of water to this! Orange peel, cinnamon, milk chocolate and brown sugar will be set free immediately.

Score

8.5
