Barrell Dovetail Bourbon Whiskey 750ml
Sweet robust aromas of candied raisins and molasses are present along with a hint of anise. A touch of heat shows evidence of the proof. It’s intriguing and pleasant.
The nose is brooding, spicy, and rich with notes of praline, brown sugar, chocolate covered banana, and dark berry jam. There’s an herbal component here, as well, with mint and pickling spices. The palate is candy sweet and syrupy, showing rum influence (molasses and barbecued pineapple) at the front of the experience, becoming more redolent with dark fruits, savory oak, candied ginger, and black pepper on the medium-plus finish.
A touch of barrel char along with toasted marshmallows also come into play, countering the sweeter notes. Mouth-coating and noticeably robust, yet not harsh, the palate is a well-developed layering of flavors that’s as satisfying as it is unique. .
