This bourbon comes to us from Indianapolis distillery Hotel Tango. Aged two years and bottled at 90 proof, this is the brand's flagship bourbon. Let's give it a whirl.
Honey, cocoa and rich peanut brittle and baking spice on the nose. This pour has come a very long way in a few short years since I first smelled it years ago at a tasting. Great structure with sweet caramel and honey.
Honey, baking spice again and some more peanut brittle. Salted caramel, light woodiness and clove for days.
Medium finish, a touch shorter than I’d like but full of barrel char, cocoa, honey, praline and a kiss of salted caramel once more.
Hotel Tango is really stepping into its own with a bourbon that can easily trade blows with the evergreen releases of much bigger distilleries.
