Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Frey Ranch Farmers + Distillers
Peggy Noe Stevens
Nose: Grassy with honey notes and citrus. A veil of floral accents with white pepper. Buttery. Sugar cookie and vanilla. Celery.
Palate: Honey and herbaceousness drive the flavors. The spice is delicate and lies in the centre tongue which gradually unfolds some of the citrus notes.
Finish: Short on the finish of sweetness but the earthy and herbal flavors linger a bit.
Comments: Light on the flavors, so an easy drinker. Pass the ice.
Nose: Cherries, both sour and sweet, with light brown sugar and vanilla custard.
Palate: Medium rich mouthfeel. Herbal element shows up here with light oak tannins and brown sugar. The fruit seems to have left.
Finish: Surprisingly for this proof, the whiskey ends solidly in the middle of the chest.
Comments: Would mingle very well with sweet vermouth in a Manhattan and would certainly tolerate the simple syrup in an Old Fashioned cocktail.
