Taconic Bourbon Cabernet Cask Finish

46.99

This wine-finished bourbon has a totally solid, middle amber appearance in the glass. The swish and coat dropped a curtain of leaf-vein style legs over the inside of the glass.

The nose was outside the box, showing little of the sweet side of bourbon, but plenty of dry, toasted wood and a surprising nuttiness. The flavor followed from there: vanilla and wood spice, but more of the latter than the former, while also being quite dry and quite nutty. The finish was a touch sweeter, but spicy in the main.

This is a light bodied bourbon, and I believe the Cabernet finish endowed it with a quite wood and nuts-driven character. Having not actually tried the original Dutchess Reserve that is the base for this expression, I can’t say whether that finish overwrote some of the more usual bourbon flavors or not, but it definitely went outside the usual box.
