Who: Trail’s End Bourbon
Where: The Bourbon started in Kentucky, but finished in Oregon
Why We Like It: This full-bodied, Kentucky Straight Bourbon is first aged for 7-8 years and then again in NEW Oregon oak. Therefore, giving it an extra spicy, creamy and toasted character. I enjoyed the notes of chocolate, hazelnut, Honeysuckle, and apricot. The legs are dark and fast moving, the texture is silky, and the finished is warm, peaty and malty. For the price, this bourbon can be enjoyed served neat, or in my favorite, an Old Fashion Cocktails.
- Appearance: Dark, warm brunette with fast-moving legs
- Nose: Welcoming nutty spice gives off a red wine aroma.
- Palate: Notes of walnut, hazelnut, and nutmeg.
- Finish: The finish is quite warming with a faint – but welcoming sweetness.
