LUX ROW ~
Old Ezra 7 — Aroma: vanilla, caramel, brown sugar, oak, and a little touch of cherry and spice.Tasting Notes: lively burst of flavor from sweet fruit, to rich caramel and spicy oak. Finish: oak, spice, and cherries to finish out its conclusion.
Blood Oath Pact No.5* — PREVIEW tasting - A masterful union of well-bred Bourbons. An eight-year-old rye bourbon which was rested in used dark Caribbean rum barrels for six months for a touch of warm island spice. Once this bourbon picked up some of the rum notes, it was combined with an 11-year-old silky wheated bourbon and an extra-aged, peppery 13-year-old rye bourbon. The result? A well-balanced, spicy, sweet, lingering bourbon sure to delight the senses.
* This is a PREVIEW tasting, the Blood Oath Pact 5 will not be released until later this year!
