Rye Bread, Malted Grain & Walnuts.
Malt, rye spice,oak.
A solid medium length finish that carries over almost directly from the palate and is dominated by spice, malt, nuts, and wood.Finally get a little touch of lingering vanilla just as everything else begins to fade.
The bourbon is aged in 10- and 30-gallon barrels, making it a small barrel Whiskey (note that it is not designated a 'straight' bourbon, so the liquid is less than two years old).Watershed has bourbon aging in standard 53-gallon barrels, but that isn't ready for market yet.
Bottled at 47% abv (94 proof), the color of Watershed's bourbon is surprisingly light.Even young small barrel bourbons can come out quite dark, but this has a bright, coppery, middle amber appearance.
The nose is fragrant with cedar and pine, giving it a crisp quality that balances against the corn sweetness and dollop of vanilla.The flavor is light, offering up a subdued caramel sweetness and a note of toasty wood.A tiny rye spice note is in there too, one that grows on the tongue to the point of elbowing the other flavors off center-stage.The finish leaves a light, lingering spicy afterglow.
