r/bourbon – 2021 Starlight Bourbon Tokaji Cask

Year: 2021 by t8ke

Info: Barrel #FB130-1, 107.4pf, 4.5yrs

Retailer: Green Farms Spirits

Notes: Sweet honey, butter cream, lovely late harvest wine sweetness. I was concerned the Bourbon + Tokaji (a sweet, Hungarian, dessert wine) would be cloying but the bourbon base has these big cinnamon, pepper, clove and oak notes that blend really nicely with the wine character. Big rich, syrupy, chewy mouthfeel and a moderately oaky finish.

Additional Info: Picked alongside Starlight GlenDronach Cask, Starlight Cigar Blend Cask
