  • Intro:

    Distilled by Starlight Distillery in Indiana, this is their double oaked bourbon whiskey, distilled in house between the Ted and his two sons, and bottled on premise. 4.5 years old and 53% ABV, it also sees a secondary maturation in a second barrel, although the distillery does not specify if this is French or American oak for the finishing barrel.

  • Nose:

    Spicy pepper, marshmallow, brown sugar and clove. Sweet, savory, spicy, quite a bit going on.

  • Taste:

    Lovely mouthfeel, pepper, brown sugar, nougat and caramel. Rich and viscous, honey at first before clove, and creme brulee take over.

  • Finish:

    Long finish but a hair rough there with a touch more tannin and ethanol. It's hard to be upset, there's a lot going on, and the sweet, dessert forward character really works well here.

  • Overall:

    Very good and especially for a double oaked which can be a crapshoot. Really enjoyable pour here and a nice example of a rarer expression in the American whiskey market.
