Poured Neat in a Glencairn


Color: Dark Amber


Nose: Creamy, flakey pastry with tones of vanilla, butterscotch, caramel and oak.


Palate: Vanilla, cinnamon, cream and toasted marshmallow.


Finish: Viscous (oily) with a nice warm linger.


Overall: This bottle was a gift from Sam Houston for helping to choose the barrels that went into this batch. There were 15 Influencers involved, and I think we all nailed it! This entire process was completely humbling and had me enjoying every sip that went into it. Overall, the end result is nothing less than a brilliant bottle and pour. Very well blended and full of complexity, this bottle is one that isn't going to last very long in the Library.


Note: This custom, limited-edition box of Sam Houston 15 Year Old Bourbon is a gift for helping curate Release No.6 - It is not available for purchase.



Library Rating: 9.2 / 10
