Bursts of sea salt and slowly cooked peach preserves give way to smoldering Turkish tobacco across your tongue. Dark toasted English Muffins served sizzling hot, smeared with both lemon marmalade and sweet French butter immediately comes into view. This sweetness dissipates into dried licks of cedar-tinged lead pencil shavings. There is assertiveness to each sip; this whiskey is both sophisticated and confident. The Bourbon #004 merely whispers the 122.9 proof with raw honey in the finish that eventually leads to a long and salty peanut brittle ending.
