Town Branch 11yr Oloroso Cask

  • Distiller:

    Town Branch

  • Bottler:

    Town Branch

  • ABV:


  • Age:

    11 Years

  • Intro:

    Distilled by Lexington Distillery using their Malt mash bill, this expression is 11 years old, bottled at cask strength, and matured entirely in Oloroso wine casks

  • Nose:

    Ripe blackberry, honey, toffee, some tannin and cinnamon. Some dough, cherry, nutmeg. Lots going on!

  • Taste:

    Medium mouthfeel. Extra woody, some bitterness, cinnamon, nutmeg, red wine and blackberry. Honestly - way tanning heavy. Grows bitter with time. Reminds me a bit of some tannin driven Balcones stuff.

  • Finish:

    Long finish - a bit warming and spicy. Tons of tannins, cocoa, chocolate, pepper. Big juicy fruits. Bitter and drying.

  • Overall:

    This should be a fairly divisive bottling. If you love powerful oak, tannins, cinnamon then this should be up your alley. It’s a bit too dry and bitter for me, but the Oloroso character is interesting and enjoyable.
