Tasting Notes Single Cask Nation Milk & Honey 2 Year Bourbon Cask
Color: Bright sunshine.
Nose: Luxurious and buttery malt presence on the nose is exquisitely balanced by the oak with warm oak spice coming to the fore, complemented by fired Meyer lemon zest, Vietnamese coffee, fresh dandelion greens, warm honey and white peony tea.
Palate: A good bit of spice up front but the soft oily texture shields the drinker from any alcohol burn. Fists full of malted barley, rich yellow fruits, more warm honey, and freshly whipped cream give way to gooseberry jam notes that are accompanied by a slightly salty tang before the return of bright citrus as it transitions to the rear of the palate.
Finish: A pleasing creaminess resides on the tongue long after the liquid has gone. The memory is zesty, spicy and citrusy and lasts for a very long time.
