Distillery Tasting Notes

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

Nose-Beautiful layering of brandied cherry over a mildly tart cherry. It opens up with time and is reminiscent of cutting into your dessert with your fork which releases cinnamon and baking spices with just a hint of oak to remind you that this is high-proof youthful. Palette- A robust rye with dark cherry, burnt vanilla, and spices for days. It's a delicious rye with a weighty mouthfeel. Balance - It's insanely well balanced with the alcohol so perfectly integrated at 115 proof you'll forget it's there, but you'll find yourself smiling more and happier with each dram. Finish- the finish is long and the spices dominate this batch, while the cherry does punch its way through to the surface.
