Old Hillside Kentucky Straight Bourbon is a journey through Kentucky's bourbon heritage. This wheated bourbon uses a unique mash bill with a high wheat content, resulting in a smooth and approachable flavor profile. Aged for an undisclosed time in new charred oak barrels, Old Hillside offers notes of honey, vanilla, baking spice, and a touch of citrus, perfect for sipping neat or in classic cocktails.

Description

Old Hillside Kentucky Straight Bourbon breaks the mold with its wheated mash bill. The use of wheat offers a distinct smoothness compared to corn-heavy bourbons.

Aroma

The initial impression offers a gentle sweetness of honey and vanilla extract. As you delve deeper, hints of baking spices like cinnamon and nutmeg emerge, adding a touch of complexity.  Citrus notes like orange peel or lemon zest might also be present, offering a refreshing counterpoint. The influence of the new charred oak barrels might be subtle, with hints of toasted wood or baking bread.

Palate

The medium-bodied character offers a smooth and easy-drinking experience. Honey and vanilla notes from the aroma translate beautifully to the palate, creating a welcoming foundation. The baking spices like cinnamon and nutmeg dance on the tongue, adding a touch of warmth and complexity. The citrus character might emerge subtly, offering a refreshing hint. The new charred oak influence is more noticeable here, with hints of toasted wood or caramel adding depth.

Finish

The sweetness fades gradually, leaving a short to medium-length finish. A touch of oak character lingers along with hints of baking spice. The citrus notes might leave a fleeting whisper on the palate. The moderate ABV (typically around 80-86 Proof) offers a gentle warmth that complements the flavors.
