Finishing Casks Used for BourbonNovember 16, 2020
Bourbon is considered one of the classics as it can easily be enjoyed on the rocks or in a mixed cocktail. It gets this ease through its few primary flavors of caramel, vanilla, and hints of oak. These flavors help to produce a well-rounded cocktail. Flavors in bourbon all depend on what grains are included in the mixture, where and what kind of barrel its aged in, and how long the bourbon will age and mature for. For example, a wheat bourbon is considered a sipping bourbon as it produces a smoother and less intense flavor to taste. A rye bourbon however will be spicier as it typically contains flavors of baking spices like cloves and nutmeg. Depending on your mood, there is a bourbon out there guaranteed to fit the needs of the flavor profile you seek.
