Official tasting notes:
Sweet-simmered rhubarb and brown sugar butter, corn husk, vanilla bean, cigar box and ripe fig on the nose. A mouth-warming symmetry of buttery caramel & earthy mint on the palate, with a degree of raspberry sweetness from the Madeira cask-finish, balancing with the rustic notes of fresh cut hay from the high rye and rolling into a white pepper, cinnamon butter & walnut finish.
Breaking Bourbon tasting notes:
“An impressive sip – Immediately makes an impact. This Madeira finished rye whisky gets its barrel finishing right. Excellent intensity, paired with colourful tasting notes from both the rye and wine casks, creates an end product that is more than the sum of its parts. A crowd-pleasing whiskey from start to finish”
