Good things come to those who wait, so we waited seven long years to open this special barrel of bourbon whiskey. After the angels has their share, we were left with a heavenly liquid copper of fruits and spices. The character of this spirit is bold yet delicate, presenting itself with sweet and herbal aromas of orange-blossom honey and jasmine tea. A first sip opens the palate to candied apple and subsequent tastes enhanced in maple syrup. The depth of toasted oak expresses itself as cardamom and nutmeg. Savory allure continues with pie spices, lingering in the heat of cinnamon and vanilla. Patience is best served neat over ice and shared in good company.
