Starlight "Braveheart" Bourbon Finished in Calvados
We were extremely lucky to be able to taste two of the limited Calvados barrels available and immediately became the top choice. This is a full flavored bourbon that nicely highlights the apple and pear notes from the Calvados.
On the nose there's a nice apple pie sweetness, vanilla, pear and granny smith apples with a hint of oak. The palate is rich with summer fruits, plums, cherries, blackberry with some nice lingering spice. This is a full flavored taste! On the finish we get nice hints of pears, luxardo cherries with some more lingering spice and hints of tobacco. The finish is warm and inviting, reminding you of grandma's secret apple pie!
