This bourbon is sold in Japan, the UK, France, and at Heaven Hill’s visitors center in Bardstown. The color is dark amber, and the nose hints at cotton candy and vanilla. Tasting it reveals something else, though…a peppery and spicy bourbon with complex citrus notes (orange peel, mango, and lime) and a minimal oak influence that’s surprising for such an old bourbon. Adding water opens up the whiskey to reveal fresh cut hay and grassy notes as well.
