Overall: So, this was a very unique experience. I didn't know what to expect when I dove into this bottle. It is a blend of Watershed's 4 year bourbon, their 6 year Apple Brandy Finished Bourbon and a sourced bourbon distilled in Indiana. The result? A truly unique blend that took me on a ride in the kitchen. I enjoyed the way the flavors came together and although only 90 Proof, there was a bit of heat which was very welcoming. The best way for me to describe this offering is an exquisite cinnamon apple Flambé. A well put together blend that isn't overpowering or too sweet.
I'd like to thank the folks at Watershed Distillery for providing this bottle, part of an incredible presentation, I might add. I love trying everything and anything and take much pride in providing my honest review.
