ABV: 50%

Score: 95 Points

This bottled-in-bond Bourbon made with heirloom Jimmy Red corn was produced to celebrate High Wire Distilling’s 10th anniversary in 2023. The nose has touches of baking spices, honey, vanilla, and milk chocolate. The taste has notes of cinnamon, cumin, and allspice that fade to reveal dried fruits, honey, and vanilla. The finish is long and subtle with lingering spices and a touch of dried fruits. Delightfully complex and full of flavor! (September, 2023)
