Straight Bourbon Whiskey
JK Williams Distilling
Peggy Noe Stevens
Nose: Soft vanilla bean and creamed corn overlay. Cardamom and white pepper with oak and black tea. A surprising strawberry and floral mix.
Palate: The palate turns up the heat and white pepper turns black with cinnamon candy. The vanilla still holds on, yet candy corn finishes up.
Finish: Spices prevail on the finish and eventually it gets earthy.
Comments: A surprising spice hit on the palate that lingers for days on end.
Nose: Toffee with root beer. Softens into light fruit and vanilla. As it sits, it fades even further.
Palate: Dark fruit with dry hay and tobacco leaf. Tobacco barn on a hot day with dried fruit. Light caramel brings some complexity.
Finish: Good give and take between fruit and oak. Well balanced and medium long. Oak gets the last word.
Comments: This will appeal to Bourbon lovers who like a drier whiskey style. Water will add some cinnamon to the profile here.
