This is a private pick of an 11yr cask from MGP, bottled by Smooth Ambler in West Virginia.
Clove, brown sugar, confectioners sugar. Some nice pepper, more sweet than spicy. Very standard MGP profile here.
Medium mouth feel, sweet with lots of honey and caramel. Theres a good deal of vanilla, pepper and allspice. Theres a bit of heat and some nice melon undertones.
Medium length with a bit of heat, but not punishing. Sweet honey, fruity melon and faint cherry notes with a good allspice backbone.
This was a nice selection and it highlights a lot of the notes that make the MGP bourbon profile a very solid release.
