Old Hickory Hermitage Reserve Barrel Proof is a limited release, award-winning American whiskey. It's known for being smooth and approachable despite its high proof. Aged for at least 10 years (mostly 13 years) in ex-bourbon barrels, it offers a unique taste profile with notes of caramel, toffee, and orange zest.

Description

Old Hickory Hermitage Reserve Barrel Proof offers a complex and intriguing flavor profile, thanks to its unique aging process and mash bill. Here’s a breakdown of its sensory experience:

Aroma

  • The first whiff draws you in with a surprising mix of sweet and savory notes. Imagine the warm, comforting scent of vanilla bean intertwining with the richness of banana bread.
  • A hint of citrus brightness comes through with marmalade, adding a touch of zest.
  • Underlying all this is a subtle smokiness reminiscent of sandalwood, adding a touch of intrigue.

Taste

  • The initial sip is surprisingly graceful for a barrel-proof whiskey. Flavors of caramel corn and toffee take center stage, offering a sweet and decadent experience.
  • A burst of citrus peel adds a welcome zing – think orange zest, balancing the sweetness.
  • Throughout the experience, gentle notes of oak weave their way in, a testament to the extended aging process, but never overpowering the other flavors.

Finish

  • The sweetness fades gradually, leaving behind a delightful echo of oak and citrus.
