Distilled November 2000 and bottled May 2021. Aged 20 years in refill Bourbon Hogshead. Cask #211552. 229 bottles produced. 56.7 ABV.
Color: Reflective Gold
Nose: The corn influence is unmistakable with notes of buttered popcorn, vanilla pudding, and hints of caramel flan but there’s also a pleasing wood spice reminiscent of aircraft kits and even linseed oil
Palate: Demonstrates the unctuousness one might expect from corn distillate but the flavors are of sage gently fried in brown butter, spiced gingerbread cookies, and Boston cream donuts
Finish: Yes, the sweetness remains but there’s a wonderful soft spiciness that quietly builds around the edges.
