An impeccably balanced spirit rested to maturity for 8 years in new American oak. Aged low in the rick house for a rounder, mellower profile that marries fruit and buttery notes with the spice and comfort of charred oak.

FLAVOR NOTES

Hand churned buttercream and freshly dipped pralines in the nose invite deeper notes of baked peach cobbler and pan toasted chestnuts. The 122.9 proof heat dissipates quickly into savory bursts of brown butter dipped cornbread lathered in stone fruit preserves. Elongated notes of still steaming cinnamon toast lightly dusted with raw sugar. Brightly aromatic tangerine and blood orange beckon with each sip eventually leading to a lengthy caramel coated popcorn finish.

Neat

Appearance: Deep hues of late summer wildflower honey. When swirled coats the glass leaving rivulets of amber on the sides.

Nose: Toasted caramelized nuts enrobed in both quince and apple butter. Saigon cinnamon, nutmeg, and brown sugar tease the nostrils with each sip.

Palate: Smooth and savory around the tongue to spill headlong down the throat. Each sip leads to creamy notes of whipped, raw honey buttercream.

Finish: Charred oak, toasted cornbread and late season stone fruits give way to blood orange marmalade drizzled over coconut cream pie.

With a few drops of spring water

Coats the palate and throat with light toffee and buttered popcorn. Opens into delicate stone fruit notes for a many minute-long finish punctuated by fragrant bursts of smoke and char.
