Tasting Notes of Denning’s Point Distillery Beacon Cask Strength Bourbon
Eye: Russett amber, Thin rims and medium droplets.
Nose: Bourbony, lots of caramel popcorn. Barrel char, maybe a little young – there’s a young funk in there. Is that spearmint in the background?
Palate: Woody – tip-of-the-tongue burn that rolls out quickly, though the hot oak remains. Cocoa powder, definitely some rye in there, too. Mouthfeel is thin-to-medium, oily but barely coats before dissipating.
Finish: Hot and short.
Overall: Some promising flavors but definitely needs a few more years to calm it down.
