Overall: First and foremost, the presentation of the package sent by Holladay Distilling was second to none! I appreciate the opportunity to give this a fair review.
Let's get to my overall impression here. This was a remarkable sipper. The flavors I mentioned above all fall in line with what I enjoy but it was actually the finish that won me over. Lingering warmth and packed with the sweet, yet spiced experience has me thinking I now need to find the perfect cigar to pair. At six years, I knew I'd be getting some delicious oak and I wasn't wrong. The perfect balance of sweet, tannic and spice. I'm looking forward to setting up a trip to get to Missouri and check out the distillery in person.
