When a Tornado tore through Buffalo Trace's campus, a handful of warehouses lost their roof and some wall material. As a result, a handful of barrels were left to bake in the sun and brave the elements while the buildings were repaired, no doubt influencing their contents.
Caramel, praline, clove, honey and pepper. Spicy and dessert forward, faintly fruity with some melon notes, some peach, some apple, scattered in.
Moderate mouth feel, some heat, but well placed on the proof. Sweet cream, honey, apples and peach, pepper and dry oak. Pretty bold set of flavors with a great undercurrent of fruit to keep the profile interesting.
Short to medium finish. Sweet cream, light peach, caramel. Toffee drizzle and a bit of pepper, tobacco and clove.
Tornado Surviving is a great pour, and a damn good bourbon. Novelty aside, the quality is there and this drinks really nicely.
