Amador Whiskey Bourbon Double Barrel
This spirit is 86.8 proof, 43.4% alcohol by volume. It’s Kentucky bourbon, aged in “new charred American oak barrels,” and then finished in Napa Valley wine barrels. Rusty in hue and brightly orange to amber, the whiskey looks flaxen and sappy, with slow, close together legs. Top notes of buttery biscuits, Bisquick, and vanilla, intermingle pleasantly with spicy cinnamon and salt water taffy. Coffee and a slight marigold floral hint underly. Immediately spicy, with a sharp, almost tannic lingering finish, this whiskey is bold.
