Rock Hill Farms Single Barrel Bourbon boasts incredibly complex, layered notes of dried fruit, toasted walnut, marzipan and vanilla, complemented by hints of mint, cocoa and black pepper. The palate is bold, yet beautifully balanced, offering a zesty, fruit-forward entry which blends with flavors of dark chocolate, candied orange, almond, coffee, tobacco and caramel. The long, smooth finish offers a proper measure of oak dryness, contrasted by notes of sweet vanilla and caramel.
The nosing passes pick up seductive aromatic notes of toasted walnut, dried red fruits, marzipan, black pepper, spices, cocoa and marshmallow. Entry is zesty, fruity, candied and almost Sherry-like; the mid-palate bursts with flavors of cocoa, dark chocolate, chocolate covered almond, coffee, tobacco and dark caramel. Ends smooth, silky, toffee sweet and honeyed.
