Doc Swinson’s 15yr Old KY Straight Bourbon Whiskey is a classic example of old bourbon with a good amount of sweet caramel on the front transitioning to dark bitter notes as you go through the experience.
- Color: Deep Copper
- Nose: Immediate blast of burnt caramel, coconut, old leather, nutmeg, cinnamon, sandalwood, and aged cigar tobacco. Inviting balance of sweet, spicy, and musty.
- Palate: Satin texture. Caramel and vanilla dominate the mid-palate with a slight banana bread component. The spices begin to ramp up with clove, coriander, and cinnamon round things off.
- Finish: The 15 years in the barrel really takes the entire experience and puts it in a stranglehold on the finish with musty leather, sandalwood, black coffee, black pepper, clove, bitter baker’s chocolate, cigar smoke, and a minute bath soap sensation. It is very drying and tannic.
