An interesting Bourbon from Virginia’s A. Smith Bowman Distillery, and finished in Port wine casks from a nearby winery. The color is ruby-red, with a sweet wine-like nose of red grapes, raspberries, honey, and hints of allspice and cocoa. The taste is spicy with cinnamon, cilantro, and black pepper in good balance, along with red grapes, honey, and a subtle touch of caramel candy. The finish is fruity, sweet, and lingering with notes of raspberries and honey.
