Hirsch The Horizon is a "high rye" straight bourbon whiskey sourced from Lawrenceburg, Indiana.  It's a blend of younger (4-year) and older (7-year) bourbons, resulting in a balanced and approachable spirit with warm notes of cinnamon and oak. The rye content gives it a bit of a spicy kick, while the aging lends a touch of sweetness on the finish.

Description

Primary Taste Notes 

  • Warm Cinnamon: Imagine the inviting aroma of freshly baked cinnamon rolls, with a touch of peppery heat that lingers on the tongue. This spice adds complexity and depth to the overall flavor profile.
  • Oak: Hints of vanilla and caramel emerge from the toasted oak barrel, providing a smooth and rich foundation. The oak influence might also present as a subtle dryness, which balances the sweetness from the grain.

Secondary Taste Notes

  • Slight Sweetness: A delicate touch of honey or brown sugar peeks through, especially on the first sip. This sweetness complements the other elements and prevents the whiskey from becoming overly dry or spicy.

Additional Notes

  • Rye Influence: The rye grain in the mash bill might contribute a subtle peppery spice or a hint of minty coolness, depending on the batch.
  • Mouthfeel: The whiskey is likely to have a medium body, feeling neither syrupy nor thin on the palate.
