Filibuster Dual Cask French Oak Barrel Bourbon 4 year old
|Region||United States, Virginia|
Deep amber in color. A nose of red fruit and black fruit notes (cherry, black cherry, plum are evident in a well-integrated nose of vanilla, spice and caramel). On the palate, caramel, vanilla, and cocoa carry through from entry to exit, with a flash of heat on the end. Spicy notes of tobacco and toasted oak notes linger. The finish is elegant, slightly dry, and very long.
Aged in American oak casks, then finished in "white-wine seasoned French oak barrels," this honey-hued whiskey has rich, powerful aromas of apricots and butterscotch. On the palate, surprising floral accents transition into honey and rounded stone-fruit notes, with a bit of a tannic pucker on the finish.
