Rabbit Hole Heigold Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Rabbit Hold Distillery
750 ML (Standard)
Sweet brown sugar and caramel contrast rye spice and burnt oak.The overall impression is characteristically sweet.The delivery is surprisingly gentle considering the proof, and the bourbon is relatively thin.Despite this, it's an enjoyable combination of flavors few will find fault with.
Caramel and gingerbread sweetness gently rise from the glass.A quick swirl reveals apricot and a touch of oak, adding a layer of dimension.It's medium to light in overall intensity, and offers a pleasant and inviting introduction to the sip.
A crescendo of rye spice briefly surges in the finish, with sweet flavors of vanilla, caramel, and gingerbread rushing back quickly.Medium-length, it ends on a sweet note which is consistent considering the rest of the sip.
A marvelous high-rye bourbon here from the Rabbit Hole Distillery in Louisville, Kentucky! This expression has been dubbed Heigold, inspired by a German stonecutter from the 1800s who settled in Louisville.The Whiskey itself is made from a mash bill of 70% corn, 25% malted German rye, and 5% malted barley.After distillation, it's matured in slowly toasted and charred barrels and eventually bottled up at 47.% ABV.
