Upon first sip, it?s intensely nutty on the front end. The mouthfeel is heavy and oily, which you can see in the legs just suspended on the glass. It doesn?t feel like you are drinking, but rather chewing your way through the whiskey. On the back end, the bourbon is very astringent and herbaceous. Where the front was more subdued, the finish is bitter and sharp with a slight sweetness and those baking spices from the nose. After the sip, you?re left with a dry mouth riddled with oak.
Right from the unopened bottle, it smelled like cherry scented nail polish remover. It needs a little time to breathe. Once settled, the proof doesn?t singe the nose, and a heavy amount of baking spices and marzipan hits you. Reminiscent of pecan pie with its sweetness and nuttiness. This one is abundant with fruit, such as, peach, apple, pear, orange. I am just picturing a fruit bowl sitting in the middle of Noe?s kitchen table.
This batch has a beautiful color that is a deep chestnut and has a robust and flavor rich taste profile. The nose is a rich balance of vanilla and oak that comes from aging in the white oak barrels for over six years. The finish is balanced and pleasant and does not overpower your taste buds.
