291 Colorado Whiskey
Barrel Proof Single Barrel Bourbon
Peggy Noe Stevens
Bright nose of cherry and baking spices. Caramel, nougat and brown sugar. Chopped pecans, candied dates and toffee.
Elegant mouthfeel with rich caramel and cherry. Toffee-vanilla ladles in sweetness. Spices erupt. Dark stone fruits.
Lush finish sending oak and wood sugar with a pleasant finishing spice.
Seductive mouthfeel with overtures of rich caramel and cherry – two glasses, please.
Very herbal, new sawdust and rye spice. Caramel is present, too.
Hard caramel candy with some candied apples and dried cherries. Cinnamon red hots provide the spice.
The sweet and savory take turns before finally to oak and pepper. Warmth lingers.
The herbal character makes this rye-like. High rye mash bill? High proof might make it dangerous in a cocktail. But try it anyway for a turbo-charged Manhattan!
