Poured Neat in a Glencarin


Color: Dark Amber


Nose: As soon as I poured this, a scent of spearmint filled the Glen. After resting for about 30 seconds and a slight swirl, I started to sniff out some caramel, vanilla bean and heavy oak tones. The mint takes a back seat the longer it sits but still a pleasant aroma, nonetheless.


Palate: First sip hits me with a very inviting sweetness. A sweetness which can only be described as a creamy vanilla frosting. The sweetness starts to morph into a dark cherry cordial and plenty of hints of spicy oak.


Finish: Sweet, spicy and a long, warm and oily coating.


Overall: The journey this review took me on was something I wasn't expecting. All these flavors and scents work really well on their own, but I would have never thought they would work so well together. I was quite pleased with this particular barrel selection. This was also my first taste of any offering from Nashville Barrel Company.
