This cask bottling, distilled in February 2011, spent eight years maturing in a 1st fill bourbon barrel. It was bottled at cask strength in November 2019 at 60.7% ABV. Cask #800233 yielded 227 bottles.

Color: Corn Oil

Nose: Prickly pear juice, oat milk, malted milk balls, etrog zest, sassafras tea, a barley field on a warm day with a mild breeze, cocoa powder, dried mandarin, olive tapenade (whacky, right?)

Palate: Big pepper upfront with a massive effervescent quality. Flavors of wheat germ, lemongrass, lime juice, increased cocoa powder, and more sassafras with a pleasant tea-like dryness as it transitions to the finish

Finish: Malted milk balls linger towards the back of the palate with cracked white pepper and a very delicate chamomile tea note

On the label: A secretive whisky that rewards time spent investigating all of its esoteric offerings: sassafras tea and etrog zest on the nose, wheat germ and lemongrass on the palate, and white pepper and delicate chamomile tea on the finish. What else will you discover?
