Saint Liberty Bertie's Bear Gulch Bourbon is a unique bourbon whiskey crafted in Texas and finished in Montana. It honors bootlegger Bertie Brown with a distinct taste profile. Aged for at least 4 years, this rye-forward bourbon offers a complex blend of stone fruits, smoky hints, and a smooth, spicy finish.

Description

Aroma

Earthy foundation: The initial impression is an earthy aroma, reminiscent of freshly turned soil or damp leaves. This sets the stage for the other notes to emerge.

Leather: Hints of tanned leather add a touch of sophistication and dryness, hinting at the bourbon’s maturity.

Stone fruits: As you take a deeper breath, a delightful sweetness emerges with notes of stone fruits like apricots and peaches. These juicy aromas provide a counterpoint to the earthiness.

Molasses: A subtle note of molasses adds a touch of richness and complexity. It hints at the caramelized sugars developed during barrel aging.

Palate

Smoky introduction: The initial sip presents a surprising but pleasant smokiness, likely imparted by the #4 char on the barrel used during aging. This smoke note is subtle and doesn’t overpower the other flavors.

Sweet transition: The smokiness quickly transitions into a wave of sweetness. Imagine caramelized vanilla, similar to the kind found in crème brûlée.

Stone fruit explosion: The sweetness is immediately followed by a burst of stone fruit flavors, predominantly apricot flavors that complement the aromas.

Brown sugar warmth: Underlying the sweetness is a gentle warmth from brown sugar notes, adding depth to the overall experience.

Spicy rye finish: The rye grain in the mash bill shines through on the finish, offering a pleasant spiciness that lingers on the tongue. This spice could resemble cinnamon, black pepper, or a hint of clove.
