Kentucky straight bourbon- 6 year old Jim Beam casks, Suntory blends in Kentucky. Delicious and very interesting — 22 days ago
Poached pear and brown sugar, baked apple with cloves, cinnamon, black tea, orange peel, sage, red hots, grilled corn husk, tamarind, nutmeg and yam lead you into the glass. Big rosemary-sage entry and dark caramel release the heat beast of cinnamon, cedar, ginger, stemmy pepper, lemon oil, cherry, pine resin, smoke, tobacco leaf burn, and a pleasant vanilla-Pecan finish that leaves a dry, satisfying sensation. Wild, hot rocket through the centuries to a smoldering hilltop and a fine clogging replete with déjà-vu. — 2 months ago
Nice wheated bourbon. Not a ton of caramel or oak but sweet and lots of corn — a month ago
Our wine pairing with Kentucky Bourbon marinaded chicken skews.
The blend is; 43% Ganache, 29% Mourvèdre, 18% Syrah and 10% Goundise.
The nose reveals; ripe; spiced, blackberries, black plums, purple fruit blend, dark currants/cassis, dark poached cherries, anise to black licorice, dark Asian spice, sweet, syrupy tarriness, dark chocolate, steeped fruit tea, crushed, dry rocks, dark, rich soils, blackberry jam, incense, limestone minerals, black & white pepper, candied; dark, red, blue and purple florals.
The body is medium, rich and gorgeous. The fruits are perfectly ripe. The structure, tension, length and balance are just hitting their stride. Still has 10 years plus of good drinking ahead. The fruits on the palate are bright, juicy and ripe. It’s drinking beautifully and has that gorgeous/sexy sensation. Spiced, blackberries, black plums, purple fruit blend, dark cassis, dark poached cherries, creamy raspberries, mixed berry fruit cola, cherry kirsch, anise to black licorice, dark Asian spice with just a touch of heat, sweet, syrupy tarriness, dark chocolate, coco powder, steeped fruit tea, vanillin notes, crushed, dry rocks, dark, rich soils, blackberry jam, incense, limestone minerals, dry top soil, dry underbrush, softer black & white pepper than the nose, leathery, some fresh tobacco, candied & bright; dark, red, blue and purple florals. The acidity is waterfall perfect. The long, elegant, ripe, juicy, well balanced fruit & earth finish is delightfully persistent for several minutes. Another all-star blend from Justin.
Happy Labor Day Weekend everyone. Cheers! 🍷
