Grape Barrel Aged Eau de Vie

Category: Flavored Eau-de-Vie

Date Tasted:
Country: Canada
Alcohol: 40%
Golden color. Aromas of coconut macaroon, caramelized nuts, and banana cream pie with a silky, fruity-yet-dry medium body and a warming, nut, mineral, fig, peach, and pepper finish. Very nicely balanced and rather high-rye bourbon-like from the barrel aging, mix accordingly.
