  1. jocmueller did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Batch 013 is the combination of a 5 year-old Indiana bourbon and 5 and 8 year-old high rye Tennessee bourbons. The 5 year-old barrels were chosen for their brilliant corn-forward flavor and the 8 year old to provide structure and depth.

    FLAVOR NOTES

    Thick slabs of smoked bacon, tiny curls of cedar wood shavings, bitter chocolate pastilles and Georgia peach preserves wash over the palate in rapid succession. Subtle notes of open fire cooked corn bread dusted in zesty chili powder give way to crumbles of dehydrated oranges. Hints of salty crushed minerals and rich lemon curd round out this bourbon.

    Neat

    Appearance: Shimmering mahogany at the core encompassed by layers of polished gold leaf.

    Nose: Roasted almond, white tobacco flowers and cracklings flow into droplets of brown butter, new saddle leather and citrus zest.

    Palate: Cavendish pipe tobacco, spicy corn bread with raw honey cream, thick lemon curd and dry straw.

    Finish: Tangy wood smoke, raw honey syrup and blood orange.

    With a few drops of limestone water

    This exquisite liquescent has the texture of Italian roast coffee with silky foamed milk.  Further sips reveal the flavor of steamed corn on the cob dripping with melting butter that dissolves into lemon zest and leather.
