This bourbon comes from some of the final distilling runs in late 1991 at the legendary Stitzel-Weller Distillery in Louisville before it was mothballed. The nose is old wood and varnish, along with tobacco and a hint of vanilla. The taste is spicy, aromatic, and strong with black pepper and chili powder notes that fade to sweet vanilla and maple syrup. The finish is dark chocolate syrup and cinnamon, and it’s an amazing bourbon!
