The nose is spiced—cinnamon, allspice, clove, pepper—and rich with cooked fruit—blueberry jam, stewed plums, pomegranate molasses—as well as roasted peanuts, vanilla, and oak. In the mouth, there’s more liveliness, with Big Red gum, cherry pie, blackberry cobbler, peanuts, and cinnamon-apple coffee cake. It wraps up beautifully, with chili-chocolate, roasted nuts, and cigar end. Kentucky Owl doesn’t disclose the ages of the bourbons used in this bottling, but the balance of maturity on the nose and verve on the palate work to excellent effect. (SSB, Fall 2019)
With some time in the glass, a pronounced vanilla aroma comes forward. The silky palate opens with allspice and cinnamon roar, evolving into warming espresso, cocoa sweetness and a coconut fade braced up with clove and faint citrusy acidity. (KN)
