Beverage Testing Institute Review
Aromas of honeyed raisin toast, grain husk, whole nuts, and delicate anise cookie follow through on a soft, gentle entry to a dryish medium body with oily pistachio brittle, tobacco and subtle baking spice notes. Finishes with touch of melted milk chocolate, earth, and light warming pepper on the easy going finish. A smooth, enveloping, feminine style, with a solid core of subtle flavors.
The barrels used for Caribou Crossing were hand-selected by Sazerac's Master Blender Drew Mayville. He selected the most mature and flavor-rich samples available and oversaw the bottling of each individual barrel. Each bottle of Caribou Crossing has its own subtle uniqueness. Whisky buffs can expect to taste radiantly-hued nectar with a nod to the tantalizing silky texture provided by the barrel. The rye grain cuts through the wood flavors making its spicy presence known without risking the creamy vanilla custard smoothness. The finish is oak with an orangey tang.
