Distillery Tasting Notes

Made by Barrell Craft Spirits ~ Stellum Spirits

Appearance: Warm amber. Nose: Aromas explode from the glass in waves and really never stop in their intensity. First out of the glass is flowery vanilla, followed by orange creamsicle, caramel corn, and mixed peppercorns. As it sits for a few minutes bright cedar emerges followed by smoldering oak. Palate: Sweet orange that has been lightly charred. Leather and the floral vanilla from the nose come forward next and are followed by cardamom, cedar, and a hint of spicy nuts that recedes into a sweet cinnamon. Finish: Some dark chocolate taffy (think Tootsie Roll) and then leather-tobacco-cedar emerges. The finish goes on for a very long time and sits prickling the back of your tongue and roof of your mouth.

85 Highly Rated Bourbon Quick Thoughts on Stellum Black Bourbon. Wow!

Mark Pringle - OMG! Stellum Black Bourbon is incredible. Do not get this confused with the Stellum Bourbon blue label. While the blue label is good, the black label takes Stellum to another level. It's worth the $89 I paid and is better than its sister (daughter?) c...Read More
