Distillery Tasting Notes

Made by Shortbarrel Bourbon

Aroma: Honey dominates the nose, and it won’t fade away. Deep notes of caramel, apples, pepper, and honey candies linger in the background. Mouth: Oh sweet honey, buttery popcorn, cinnamon spice, a “bit o honey” candy-like feel that keeps going, coating your mouth with a honey roasted cashew smile and heat to remind you it’s 9 points from HAZMAT. Finish: Bring on the proof. The long, thick, rich, creamy, honey finish remains. The proof lets you know it's there and wants you to come back for more without overpowering the vanilla, honey, and oak that permeate from the barrel-aging.
