The weekend flew by so quickly! It was filled with wine, music and a little dancing. Of course, work was also thrown into the mix! And now it’s back to a busy Monday filled with thick clouds, rain and chilly temps.
The other evening I tasted (at the encouragement of a friend) Tom Bulleit’s 10-Year-Old Bourbon. This blend of 68% corn, 28% rye and 4% barley was aged in charred American White Oak for 10 years. I am not well versed when it comes to Bourbon, but this was delicious! I drank it straight up. The color was beautiful dark amber with heady aromas of soft spices, oak and vanilla. On the palate it was smooth and rich with flavors of oak, caramel, vanilla, citrus and spice. The finish was long with spices and vanilla lingering. 91.2 proof. Price: $55
