The perfectly balanced taste comprises more than 200 detectable flavour notes, from bold grain and wood, to sweet aromatics, spice, and fruit & floral notes.
This particular straight bourbon was first introduced in 1996 and well known as "Distiller's Select". This high-rye bourbon has a mash bill of 18% rye. It is made from a combination of both pot still and column still whiskey. The bourbon is then aged between for at least 6 years.
Rich, luminous mahogany with honey tints. Elegant and creamy, with strong notes of vanilla that overlap a rich dark fruit medley, along with butterscotch, cinnamon and a dash of black pepper. Mouth-filling spice, vanilla, caramel and fruit flavours, with a touch of mint. The finish is long, smooth and clean, with slight spice and pepper.
