Distilled by Starlight and matured in PX sherry barrels for an undisclosed period of time, this is a nation wide, blended release from the brand at barrel proof.
Bold cherry, fig, pear, blackberry and toffee. It's hard to understate the sherry influence here. A touch proof forward, some oak, some young spirit-y notes.
Moderate mouthfeel, a touch of heat. Sweet fig, cherry, a bit of blackberry and bitter oak. Very solid, great tannin structure for the age, a touch of tobacco.
Long finish. This is where I find Starlight's recent release shine. Excellent oak structure here, blends sweet bourbon notes like honey, toffee, a touch of tannin and the wine finish expertly.
A bit imbalanced at first, this release from Starlight is a talented finisher, releasing a young finished bourbon with great complexity and balance: no easy feat in the craft whiskey world.
