Overall: Amburana finishes are all the talk right now. But with flavors like Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Oatmeal Raisin Cookies finishing a delicious base bourbon, the hype is quite real. This time of the year also plays into this finish just as Lucky Seven's Holiday Toast did for me a couple years ago. Something about those baking spices on a cooler crisp day that hits right. The New Yorker is a gem. Immediately the smell of Oatmeal Raisin Cookies filled the Library upon popping the cork. Warm and inviting, the amburana finish is perfect and without any sharpness or off-putting tanins. A beautiful compliment all the way around and a great tip of the cap to Master Blender, Ashley Barnes. A lighter, creamy cigar is next in line with this tasty pour.
How Lucky Seven Started: "Co-founders Michael Lahalih and John Pals have been best friends since their college years and share a common bond of bourbon and cinema. In fact, the Lucky 7 namesake is derived from the infamous Stage 7 in Hollywood, CA, where some of the greatest movies in cinema history were filmed. The warehouse-sized stage produced so many award-winning films that the industry started calling it “Lucky Stage 7.”
Lucky 7 Spirits brings together a complex mix of qualities; each flavor highlighting our unique tone of voice. We are classy, confident and curious. We always tip our hats, invite the outsider to join our table and embrace the notion that life is a precious gift. We are quirky, fun and relaxed yet we know our stuff, inside and out. We are professionals, connoisseurs, fanatics, friends and ultimately family. We love good bourbon, good people and good times." - Lucky Seven Website
