Continually improving the complexity of their barrel strength blends, Batch 6 offers a decidedly more exciting flavor profile over Batch 5. Initial peaks of sweetness on the palate countered by heavy spice during the finish, create an engaging sip. Much like previous batches, the bourbon is hotter than you’d expect from a 115 proof bourbon. It is most likely the result of its age, being punchy in some places and featuring light grain and mild oak in others. Overall, it's an approachable bourbon that will challenge you when you least expect it.
