Description

Aroma

Initial Impression: Prepare for a welcoming arrival. The familiar scent of bourbon greets you first, offering hints of vanilla extract, caramel, and a touch of oak. As you hold the glass closer, a delightful sweetness emerges. This is the signature of the Wisconsin wildflower honey infusion. Depending on the specific flowers used, the honey character might present with delicate floral notes like lavender or chamomile, or perhaps a hint of herbal character like clover or thyme.

Deeper Sniffs: As you delve deeper, the interplay between the bourbon and honey becomes more intriguing. The oak influence might reveal itself with hints of vanilla bean or toasted wood shavings. The rye content (though potentially minimal) could add a subtle peppery spice, adding a touch of complexity. The honey character takes center stage again, with the specific floral or herbal notes becoming more pronounced.  This interplay creates a unique aromatic profile that is both familiar and intriguing.

Palate

First Sip: The medium-bodied character offers a satisfying weight on the tongue. The 90 proof (45% ABV) delivers a gentle warmth that complements the flavors. The initial taste is where the magic happens. The familiar bourbon notes of vanilla and caramel are joined by a wave of sweetness from the honey infusion. This sweetness is natural and complements the bourbon character,  avoiding an artificial or cloying sensation.  Depending on the specific wildflowers used, hints of floral or herbal notes might echo on the palate, adding another layer of intrigue.

Midpalate: As the whiskey opens up, the oak influence becomes more noticeable. Hints of vanilla bean, toasted wood, and maybe even a touch of baking spice like cinnamon or nutmeg emerge.  The rye spice (if present) might add a subtle peppery tingle on the tongue. Throughout this dance, the honey character remains a constant companion, offering a pleasant sweetness that lingers without being overpowering.

Finish

Lingering Flavors: The sweetness fades gradually, leaving a medium-length finish. The oak character lingers with hints of vanilla and toasted wood. The subtle floral or herbal notes from the honey might linger in the background, offering a final reminder of the unique infusion. The gentle warmth from the alcohol fades slowly, leaving a satisfying conclusion to the experience.
