  • Excerpt: I wasn't sure how Rose + Bourbon would go at first, but it's a great combination that hopefully will inspire many other brands to continue to push the envelope in innovative cask finishes. This particular one just works.

  • Intro:

    Penelope Bourbon's Rose Cask Finish takes 2+ year MGP and finishes it further in Rose wine casks. It's bottled at 47% ABV with no filtering.

  • Nose:

    Light and sweet - plenty of fresh berries, juicy wine notes and a cinnamon sugar background. The bourbon notes pair nicely with the lighter bodied wine notes on the nose.

  • Taste:

    Medium mouth feel. Brown sugar returns with some oak tannins, fresh berry notes and a hint of vanilla bean.

  • Finish:

    Long finish. The tannins work well with the sweet bourbon + wine notes, leading to a delightful exit.

  • Overall:

    I wasn't sure how Rose + Bourbon would go at first, but it's a great combination that hopefully will inspire many other brands to continue to push the envelope in innovative cask finishes. This particular one just works.
