This KY only Limited Release by the newly founded, er, re-founded, brand Kentucky Par is distilled by an undisclosed but not so hard to guess KY distillery and bottled by Kentucky Par at 12 years old, and 50% ABV. It's a little on the pricy side, but that doesn't change the flavor, so I think we have all we need to dive in. Let's get to it.
Sweet honey, bright fruits like mango and cherry, light oak and toffee. Nothing too wild, nice hit of tropical fruits there, not too oaky for the years.
Rich on the palate, nice and sweet with lots of toffee, vanilla, banana bread, mango and some pepper. Not too oaky.
Nice finish, medium in duration, but pleasant. Heat is behaved, and the fruity parade continues. Some oak, mostly vanilla, mango, toffee and a hint of pepper.
This is really interesting, and the fruity character is really interesting and fun. Id buy this again and I bet it works great in a cocktail too.
