Thomas S. Moore Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Finished In Cabernet Sauvignon Cask
The Cabernet Sauvignon cask finish expression is bottled a little lower at 95.3 proof. Still fruity, though we’re looking at berries instead of more concentrated jams of its port cask-finished sibling. Raspberries and vanilla make up a large portion of the nose, with an additional citrus and herbal characteristic. On the palate, a spicy start gives way to syrupy caramel and juicy raspberries. The mid-palate introduces vanilla and some baking spice. The finish here is longer with a lingering fruity sweetness. The sweetest of the bunch.
