Kentucky Vintage

WhiskySpeller_DbtD_bourbon_22.jpg

Opening door 22 in the Drinks by the Dram Bourbon Advent Calendar reveals a sample of Kentucky Vintage bottled at 45%. On the nose I find a good dose of wood spices and spicy cake notes, gingerbread, nettles and breakfast cereal.

The palate is a bit less woody then the nose predicted but still a good dryness of peanuts and walnuts is running through the vanilla, blackcurrant, raisins, malt and maple syrup notes. A middle length finish with some nutty and coffee bitter notes. There is some sweetness underneath this all, but I cant seem to access it fully. Not a bourbon for me I think… Curious to see what tomorrow will bring on this new bourbon discovery path the last weeks! Thanks for sharing a sample Drinks by the Dram!
