The sip enters gently and the first thing I notice is its velvety mouthfeel.It'squite easy to roll around in the mouth with almost no burn, and it takes a few moments for the flavors to develop.An ever-so-light cinnamon spice comes into play, along with brown sugar, cocoa, and maple syrup.It'svery approachable, with a contrasting viscous, velvety mouthfeel against a modest set of flavors.
Light with traces of cinnamon and cocoa which layer against traditional notes of caramel and burnt oak.While the scents are nice, they are very delicate necessitating a good hard inhale to eke them out.
The flavors crescendo, with a brief eruption of baking spice and chocolatey caramel notes.The mild intensity quickly dissipates, leaving traces of brown sugar and maple syrup sweetness against rye spice.
Old Elk Bourbon is created by master distiller Greg Metze, formerly of MGP, for Old Elk Distillery in Fort Collins, Colorado.Two unique aspects of its   Read More production are a much higher proportion of malted barley than is typical in a bourbon (along with corn and rye), as well as a slower proofing process for bringing the barrel-strength Whiskey down to its final proof for bottling.It is bottled at 44% abv.   Read Less
