Kentucky Owl Bourbon St Patrick's Day (Limited Edition)
On the palate, the first notes to pop are hot cinnamon candies and lots of tart apple. There’s an acidity to this whiskey that is nice, giving the apple a “juicy” character, along with complementary citrus tones. There’s also lots of vanilla and some florals, while cinnamon sugar gains strength over time, ultimately suggesting a baked good along the lines of a Dutch baby. The oak, at the same time, again seems to suggest the younger side of the blend, with some slightly green notes, while ethanol is fairly prickly for the 100 proof point. The final impression is of bright fruit and moderate spice notes, and an oakiness that suggests both youth and maturity.
