Distillery Tasting Notes

Made by Kentucky Bourbon Distillers (KBD), Ltd. ~ Willett Distillery

A mouth-warming symmetry of buttery caramel & earthy mint on the palate, with a degree of raspberry sweetness from the Madeira cask-finish, balancing with the rustic notes of fresh cut hay from the high rye and rolling into a white pepper, cinnamon butter & walnut finish.
