This Bourbon is distilled at Corsair Artisan Distillery in Kentucky from what’s said to be the original Pepper family recipe dating back to 1780, and is matured for 6-8 months in 15-gallon Oak barrels.
The nose has notes of dark chocolate, allspice, cocoa, honey, and a touch of buttered popcorn. The taste is young and fiery with cocoa, cinnamon, black pepper, and toasted oak. The finish has a subtle touch of vanilla, along with mild spices that linger nicely. (September, 2013)
