r/bourbon – 2021 – Heaven’s Door Single Barrel #9341 “Tea Time”

Year: 2021 by t8ke

Info: Barrel #9341, 80/10/10 Mashbill, Distilled 1/10/2017, Kelvin Cooperage, #4 Char, M+ Toast, Distilled by Tennessee Distilling

Notes: I’ve never gotten tobacco and black tea like this so heavily in a bourbon before. Nougat, caramel, touches of butterscotch here and there with a delightful herbal character. Last June I was in Kentucky and had a whiskey cocktail at Proof On Main that was made with a black tea simple and this reminded me so much of that. Black walnut bitters, tobacco, pound cake, maple, toffee and a spice drop finish.
