Man O’Words 2017 Double Oak Bourbon 60.6%

ABV: 60.6
Bottle size: 70
In stock

Spirit is aged in a heavily charred ex-Woodford Reserve finishing cask which has had the staves cut into in order to expose the virgin wood beneath.

Dist: 2017 Btl: 2023
Tasted: Dec 2023
The nose is similar to the Fresh Bourbon bottling with plenty of toasty and grippy oak. Still pleasantly fruity with apricot, pear, white fruit and hints of earth, straw, however the fruit is a little more floral. Surprisingly there is less Virgin oak character than on the Fresh Bourbon bottling and the oak/ barley/ straw balance is better.

The palate is also similar to the Fresh Bourbon bottling with plenty of soft and juicy fruit, subtle toffee and grippy tannins. Apricot, apple and pear mingle with ginger and vanilla. Unlike the Fresh Bourbon bottling there is a lovely citric seam and although the finish is masked it is still juicy.

A drop of water makes the nose and the palate almost tropical in character with layers of Alsace-esque white fruit and juicy citrus. Still wonderfully balanced and long. Slightly grippy spice finish.
