JAX 2020 Single Barrel Selection
Poured Neat in a Glencairn
Nose: Caramel, Toffee, Vanilla, Cinnamon and a nice recurring Oak scent.
Palate: Frosted Flakes cereal....They're Grrrrrrreat! Sweet Cream, Honey and Vanilla Bean.
Finish: Mellow, Oily Coating and a Medium Linger. Caramel flavor throughout the entire experience.
Overall: JAX is a very reputable spirits store in Georgia and this Single Barrel Selection lives up to that excellent reputation. The 45% Wheat in this mash, sweetens this up more than you realize. The Proof may be 117.4 but because of that sweetness, this drinks around 105. The perfect back-porch sippin' bourbon. That is exactly how I'm enjoying this right now. A beautiful 80 degree Spring day in the Carolinas. Fiddler Georgia Heartwood is the real deal.
