Tasting Notes Of Breckenridge Port Cask Whiskey
Spice springs from the glass, then followed by pine and barrel oak which slowly overtake it. Vanilla and maple gently mingle in providing a pleasant and somewhat memorable aroma.
It’s fairly straightforward with caramel and oak dominating the initial palate. Toffee and butterscotch then roll in before notes of youthful grain and malt push through. Slightly buttery and on the sweet side, with an overall thin consistency.
Oak dominates on the medium long finish, that’s punctuated with a dry aftertaste. Basic and straightforward delivery.
