Amber color. Inviting, herbal aromas and flavors of fresh tarragon, rye seed, chocolate-covered caramels, pecans, and buttered sweet corn with a slightly chewy, vibrant, dryish medium body and a warming, delightful, medium-length finish evoking notes of gingerbread, caraway, and dark chocolate shavings. A spicy, herbal, high-rye Bourbon that will be a great all-arounder for cocktails; Manhattans, sours, juleps and more will shine.

Blended Straight Bourbon is a blend of straight bourbon whiskies with an added allowance to contain coloring and/or flavoring, something that is not traditionally allowed in the straight bourbon category. In addition to this allowance, a Blended Straight Bourbon's components do not need to be distilled in the same state as one another.
