Rare Stash Bourbon is a unique collection of small-batch, Kentucky straight bourbons crafted from "rare stashes" of aged bourbon whiskey. Each release is a one-time offering, featuring a distinct flavor profile due to the use of different barrels and aging processes. The brand prides itself on not blending their bourbons to achieve consistent taste, allowing each batch to reflect the unique character of the source ingredients and barrels.

Description

Appearance

Imagine swirling the amber liquid in your glass, catching glints of gold and rich brown. This deep hue speaks volumes about Rare Stash Bourbon’s time spent slumbering in charred oak barrels, hinting at the depth of flavor to come.

Aroma

As you bring the glass closer, the initial sweetness might surprise you. Hints of vanilla bean and butterscotch intertwine with the warm, toasty notes of oak. Depending on the specific batch, you might also detect a touch of spice or even a subtle nuttiness like hazelnut.

Taste

The first sip is where the magic happens. Rare Stash Bourbon avoids the harsh bite some younger bourbons possess. Instead, it delivers a smooth, almost velvety mouthfeel. The initial sweetness detected on the nose translates onto the palate, with vanilla and caramel taking center stage. As the flavors unfurl, hints of baking spices like cinnamon or nutmeg might emerge, alongside the subtle toastiness of oak.

Mid-Palate

Here’s where things get interesting. Depending on the char level of the barrels used, some batches might present a touch of peppery heat or a hint of smokiness. This complexity adds an exciting layer to the drinking experience.

Finish

The warmth from the alcohol is gentle but noticeable, leaving a pleasant tingle on the tongue. The flavors linger for a surprisingly long time, with the sweetness slowly fading to reveal the lingering oak and subtle spice notes.
