Russell’s Reserve small batch
Sweet vanilla and toffee. Hints of red licorice, maraschino cherries, and almonds or marzipan start to unfold and build up a potpourri of bourbony goodness.
A menage of toffee, vanilla, and spice. Upfront this is what a bourbon should taste like, a classic of a bourbon flavor profile, but there’s more to it than that. If you let it rest on your tongue for a second or two and then slowly move it around a bit some silky hints of corn and earthy rye start to appear alongside whispers of pumpkin / apple pie hybrid.
Spice sticks around for a while, but as it fades there is a Creme de Noyaux type flavor, though much less sugary, that hangs around for a minute or so, but fades without leaving any sourness or bitterness behind.
