Peggy Noe Stevens

Nose: Golden raisin and butterscotch with biscuit. Corn and honey-soaked vanilla.

Palate: The honey truly stands out on this one with layers of the vanilla and wood notes. Not too spice forward, but more of the delicate fruits of apricot and peach.

Finish: Finishes quickly and does not linger as long, but pleasant with the honey and vanilla.

Comments: This is an early in the week drinking Bourbon with its delicate and satisfying flavors.



Susan Reigler

Nose: A bold vanilla and citrus-inflected aroma. A subtle trace of  tobacco leaf. This is one to enjoy nosing for a while before sipping.

Palate: Vanilla pudding with fruit pieces, but not too sweet. Fruit forward with not-quite-ripe peach leading into that subtle tobacco. 

Finish: Little peppery heat signals the finish as the whiskey moves to the back of the throat.

Comments: Excellent balance with just
enough complexity to make this a very good sipping whiskey.
