Ultimate Beverage Challenge 91 points - Pretty topaz hue. Aroma features evolved and melded (for its age) fragrances of lead pencil, stone and unsweetened breakfast cereal. Taste-wise, the flavor profile highlights the oaky vanillin, popcorn and faintly fruity aftertaste. (Mar 2012)
This extremely limited-production bourbon--described in a New York Times article as "virtually impossible to find"--but we have it. It is pot-distilled twice and then aged in charred oak barrels, creating a spirit that is deeply flavorful and very sippable.
