Blood Oath Pact No. 9 Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey-750 ml
Luxco’s Blood Oath series broke through the bourbon scene with a bang releasing their first blended Kentucky straight bourbon expression in 2015.
A masterful union of three well-bred ryed bourbons. One, an oaky 16-year-old. Two, a luscious 12-year-old. And three, a 7-year-old finished in Spanish Oloroso Sherry casks which carries the aroma of sweet sherry while satiating the palate with dark fruit, molasses, chocolate and tobacco. One, a spirited bourbon with a decidedly rye mash bill, unmistakably oaky and strong. Two, a disarmingly-smooth, wheated bourbon to soften the edges, yet intensify the flavor. And three, a port-barrel finished rye for a velvety sweet goodbye. An arranged marriage of the rich, rare and unexpected, for you to have, hold and hide.
Nose: Toasted oak, caramel & maple syrup with vanilla, cocoa, tobacco leaf and dried fruits.
