From the company website:
Welcome to Clermont, the first of three special releases within our Kentucky series. Born in Clermont and bottled at the grand age of 204 months. This rich amber liquid is notable for its nose of burnt sugar, palate of caramelized oak and lingering warmth to finish. It column’t come from anywhere else; the nuanced terroir and microclimates shaped by the ridged and rolling hills. The cool wind against the shelter of the valleys. Pockets of rackhouses, close together, swathed by thick woodland, aglow year-round beneath the strong Kentucky sunlight. The unique contours of Clermont discernible in every pour. Legacy is always in the making.
One liquid, aged 17 years at our three Kentucky campuses to make three different expressions. Taste the effect of different terroirs on a single mashbill.

Hardin's Creek Clermont taste and aftertaste
I’ve unfortunately lost some Glencairn’s while in transit, and that made me very sad. So, I wised up and bought this Glencairn Travel Case that comes also comes with 2 glasses so I don’t need to worry so much about them breaking. I think it’s great, and I think you’ll love it too.Seriously, if you already have glasses, protect them.

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.
