A very unusual Bourbon, distilled in New York State from grain grown on the estate and matured using the Solera process normally used for maturing Sherry. The nose has a rich oakiness with caramel, molasses, sweet honey, and touches of pepper and vanilla. The taste is thick and sweet with honey, molasses, brown sugar, caramel candy, a subtle pepperiness and hints of vanilla. The finish has notes of oak, caramel, honey, and a slight tartness as the flavors fade away.
