From the company website:Our Limited Edition Cask Strength Virginia Straight Bourbon Whiskey is 144.5 proof and was aged for 10. The nose is strong of cherry and toast with a slight hint of leather and caramel. Taste the flavors of apple and cherry first followed by vanilla and roasted nuts, which strike a great balance between the soft, sweet floral notes and strong wood char flavors. This bourbon is bottled uncut and non-chill-filtered, with a slick, peppery, and crisp aftertaste that leaves the tongue feeling like it’s bouncing in delight from the intensity of the experience.

I have far too much fun writing about whiskey and singlehandedly running The Whiskey Shelf to bring you independent, honest, and useful reviews, comparisons, and more. I’m proudly Asian American and can speak Cantonese, Mandarin, and some Japanese.There are no sponsors, no media companies, and no nonsense. Support The Whiskey Shelf by Buying Me A Shot.
Shattered glass really sucks, so if you’re on the move, this Glencairn-like stainless steel snifter glass should survive your travels. Full transparency, this is an Amazon affiliate link, so I may earn a commission if you buy this or something else from Amazon.
