Light pepper, rich cologne notes, camping under the stars, eucalyptus, mint. Great caramel & vanilla notes… Very cliché to describe a Bourbon like this, but these notes really shine here. Apricot, cigar boxes and cellars. Length – Medium; Lemon, cedar, light smoke, fresh berries, spearmint. Starts out with great spicy, minty notes & when water is added the nose makes you want to set up a tent in the woods! Classic caramel & vanilla notes shine on the palate with light cedar & more mint notes prevailing at the end. The origins of Small Batch Bourbon can be traced back to the earliest days of Bourbon’s long and colorful history. Like American Jazz, it is an original art form, unique to America. It is an American classic in its own right. Back in the early days of colonial America, 1779 to be exact, the “Corn Patch and Cabin Rights” law went into effect. Similar to many other areas at the time, Kentucky was known as a Territory, and many of the early pioneers settling in the Kentucky Territory were growing corn as their main crop in order to validate the land claims that had been granted them, or, corn writs, as they were called. To prevent spoilage to their grain crops, many of these early settlers milled their grain and distilled it into spirits. They were, in effect, farmer-distillers out of necessity, to save their crops and their livelihoods.
