Maker's Mark "B&B Red Velvet" Private Selection Bourbon
Who doesn’t have a bit of a sweet tooth! We certainly enjoy a rich glass of bourbon dessert after dinner, and something about those lush sippers, they always seem to disappear so quickly. With the new Roasted French Mendiant stave available for the first time, we were excited to feature it. While its flavors were soft and subtle, even with 2 staves the fruit and milk chocolate notes could be picked up. Everyone knows the key to a really good piece of chocolate is that bitterness underneath it all, adding depth, complexity, and balance; in this role the French Spice stave shines as a companion to the Mendiant. Three staves of American Pure add an infusion of American oak wood sugars, creating a perfect combination of vanilla swirled with chocolate. Short bread, bing cherries, cream cheese frosting, cocoa teddy grahams, dried red fruit, light oak, and fresh cream feature before a long dry finish.
