Double distillation in a copper pot still. Aged in old calvados casks and former sherry casks. Amber color. A rich nose with silky cooked apple and cider flavors. Hints of almonds. The mouth is fresh with a great balance, delicate a round finish. One can feel the print of the Port cask on a finish of candied rancio.
Since 1946 this bourbon has been held in high regard. 80 proof and distilled from corn, rye and barley malt, it’s smooth and simple, yet robust in its own way. There is much to love about this bourbon that has withstood the test of time.
