Saint Cloud Kentucky Straight Bourbon 7 YO Single Barrel offers a unique Kentucky Straight Bourbon experience. Each bottle is a single barrel bottling, showcasing the distinct character of a hand-selected barrel after seven years of aging. This results in a complex and flavorful bourbon with notes of spice, richness, and balanced sweetness.

Description

Aroma

Initial Impression: The high proof might present itself first with a slight ethanol warmth. As it settles, expect a wave of baking spice like cinnamon and nutmeg, along with hints of vanilla extract and brown sugar sweetness. Some reviewers detect a touch of citrus, like orange peel, adding a touch of freshness.

Deeper Sniffs: The oak influence from the seven years of aging starts to emerge, presenting notes of toasted wood and perhaps a hint of leather. Underneath these layers, some enthusiasts pick up subtle herbal notes or even a touch of dark chocolate.

Palate

First Sip: The high proof delivers a burst of warmth across the tongue. The rye grain, if prominent in the mash bill, comes through with a peppery spice that tingles the palate. Hints of caramel sweetness and vanilla from the oak aging attempt to balance the spice.

Midpalate: As the bourbon opens up, the oak influence becomes more noticeable, offering flavors of toasted wood and baking spices like clove or allspice. Rich, decadent flavors like dark chocolate or dried fruit (think prunes or raisins) can emerge depending on the specific barrel.

Finish

Lingering Flavors: The spicy rye notes tend to linger the longest, offering a pleasant warmth. The oak influence continues to showcase itself with hints of vanilla and perhaps a touch of char. Some reviewers detect a subtle return of the fruitiness or chocolate hints from the midpalate.
