Smoky, woodsy, caramelized flavors of brown sugar, honey and maple syrup include a hint of wood. With a light to medium amber color, a full-bodied, gorgeously textured, fleshy, broad, savory mouthfeel, and no harshness, this is either a brilliant master blend or a bourbon with some serious age. If the latter is the case, they should promote that fact on the label. Velvety, opulent and stunningly complex, this is one of the most complex of the Kentucky bourbons I tasted.

Bold and well structured, this Bourbon features warming vanilla and caramel accented by orange peel, stone fruit and a dry baking-spice finish. Sip it with a chunk of ice, or mix up a round of juleps. The trademark round, faceted bottle with the horse-topped cork is perfect for Derby Day.

Here at B-21, we tasted numerous barrel samples and received the original barrel with our order's arrival. The finished product was truly golden in color and smooth and flavorful with no hot aftertaste, even at the high 93 proof. An utterly incredible sipping whisky, from our table to yours.
