Doc Swinson's Single Barrel 12 Year Sherry Cask Bourbon Whiskey
750 ML (Standard)
Cracker jacks, burnt sugar, nut brittle, cherries, and chocolate-covered caramels
Bright cherry, spearmint, whipped cream, spicy cinnamon, and nutmeg
The light amber color does not say you are about to sip a 12-year bourbon. A variety of aromas fill your nose, from creamy caramel or is it cinnamon bread or caramelized sugar. The undertones of grilled apricot struggle to reach your nose. A deep fruit and vanilla flavor hit your tongue before the oily texture washes it away. As the oil fades, you get a fruit sweet and tangy barrel char. I initially mistook the tang for a fruit tang, but it is barrel char. Most likely from the charcoal filtering process. The whiskey leaves a slight spice throughout your mouth.
