Peggy Noe Stevens

Nose
Cherry and smokey wood char combine and then bring out red apple and fig.  Clove spice and ginger prevail, before brioche.

Palate
Brown sugar and honey with the wood sugar. Cherry and mixed spices are perfectly balanced and complex. Toffee rich with some truffle.

Finish
Incredibly balanced mouthfeel, gracious and warm that lingers until the next sip.

Comments
Get excited folks, a truly traditional Bourbon with beautiful complexity and balance.

Score

9.4

Nose
Vanilla, peaches, brown sugar, like peach cobbler before it goes in the oven, including a dusting of cinnamon. 

Palate
Proof doesn’t get in the way of the vanilla and caramel, as well as the fruit and spice. Oak is present, but subtle.

Finish
Long lasting with persistent sweet caramel eventually merging with very tame oak tannins that take over ready for the ending.

Comments
A truly elegant sip at a robust proof. A little water allows an extra layer of nuts to appear. 

Score

9.2
