Every Drop Honestly Crafted.
Strictly Sweet Mash
No Water Added
Proof 109.6 % ABV 54.80
Maple butter-cream nose. A sweet fruity citrus and sweet oak character further the complexity of the nose. Tobacco and leather join the mix and compliments the even more prevalent maple.
The taste starts with a really bold burst of dark fruit cobbler, but then gives rise to a cinnamon-caramel wave. The second sip creates a really nice oak sweetness, that transitions into this amazingly extended finish of chocolate and warm oak (sweet and spicy), that showcases a hefty mouthfeel. It even appears to have a creamy chocolate quality late in the finish, with a hint of cherry syrup.
Proof 108.4 % ABV 54.20
Very complex nose. A fruit syrup character leads, but is followed with cinnamon, spice, and even ultra fruity (apple/cherry) pipe tobacco. On the second nose, the tobacco, a caramel, and a sweet oak character become more prominent. It also features a strong citrus note.
The taste matches the complexity of the nose. A creamy mouthfeel and a spice bomb lead things off, but is quickly followed by strong citrus, caramel, and sweet oak. Late in the taste, vanilla and dark chocolate even join. The finish carries with a cherry/orange pipe tobacco, with dark chocolate complimenting a great finish.
Proof 109.2 % ABV 54.60
Warm, full nose. Oak sweetness and oak spice establish strong earthy tones. Caramel and cinnamon compliment, along with an orange spice. Later, tobacco and leather join.
The flavor is amazingly complex and quickly shifts between flavors. It starts with this extremely creamy, fruity sweetness, but quickly shifts to this strong wave of oak/rye spice and cinnamon. In the wake of the spice burst, caramels and vanillas join. Dark chocolate also arrives. The finish begins with the emergence of the dark chocolate, but returns to the core earthy spices for an amazingly long finish, dotted with sweet tremors.
