Anita's Choice Six-Grain Bourbon whiskey starts with a mild brown sugar caramel and oak aroma. There is a little bit of ethanol on the nose that seems to linger throughout the tasting. There are some nice chocolate and honey notes in the aroma as well. However, after letting the bourbon sit in the glass for a minute, the ethanol aroma disappears, and the more pleasant notes mentioned earlier become stronger.
There's a hint of chocolate, tobacco, and oak on the palate with lingering spice. Pepper too. However, the oak seems to be dominant. If I didn't know any better, I would say that this is a Brown-Foreman profile; however, they do not have a six-grain mash bill made from corn, rye, wheat, malted barley, Carolina Gold Rice, and oat.
This palate is simple.
This moderately long oak-dominant and black pepper finish is a nice ending to a somewhat simple palate.
