2021 – r/bourbon – Starlight VDN (Vino de Naranja) Cask Finish Rye

Year: 2021 by t8ke

Info: Finished for 7 months in a Vino de Naranja wine barrel

Notes: Extra spicy rye mingles perfectly with the sweetness of the cask here, providing a syrupy, but not cloying mouthfeel and a long, orange peel forward spicy finish. Lemon peel, honey, spice and clove on the nose with a powerful, complex finish. 

Additional Info: Starlight’s breaking into the finish game as of late, but their bread and butter is still a well made whiskey. This rye cask captivated me on two different trips, I foolishly left it uncommitted my first day there, so when I was back 48 hours later…I knew I couldn’t make the same mistake twice.
