Origin: James B. Beam Distillery

Whiskey Type: Bourbon

Mash Bill: Comprised of 75% Corn for a robust sweetness, 13% Rye for a spicy complexity, and 12% Barley for a rich, full-bodied texture.

Proof: A bold 125.5°

Age: Matured for a precise 7 years, 1 month, and 2 days, achieving a perfect balance of depth and character.

Packaging: Adorned with a distinctive robin's egg blue label, this bourbon is presented in a classic wooden box, complete with a detailed batch information card for the discerning collector.

Nose: The bouquet opens with a pronounced barrel funk, setting the stage for a rich tapestry of aromas. Notes of peanut brittle and vanilla frosting soon follow, with a zesty lemon twist that adds a bright edge to the olfactory experience.

Palate: The palate is greeted with an initial sweetness of cherry and strawberry, quickly giving way to a more complex tannic bitterness. Layers of jammy plum and raspberry unfold, balanced by a hearty nutty oak essence. The citrus zest reappears, now joined by dark, red grape nuances, delivering a vibrant and spicy mouthfeel ideal for sipping on crisp evenings.

Finish: The finish is a dynamic journey, starting with a fig newton essence that transitions into a refreshing minty coolness, ending with a lemon drop zest. This bourbon’s profile is akin to a high-proof Knob Creek, but with an additional layer of intensity. The aftertaste oscillates between a lingering spicy zest and a mellow smoothness, concluding with a creamy, buttercream frosting note that harmonizes with the lemon and sweet tea nuances.
