Distillery: Bernheim Distillery . Lewisville, KY
Age: 4 YR
Nose: The first thing I thought of was Bananas Foster and ice-cream. It starts out with some banana heavy fruit notes, caramel and vanilla followed by some notes of grain, spice, citrus zest and butterscotch.
Palate: The aroma is a bit richer than the flavor and the caramel comes in a bit watery followed by notes of spice, fruit, raw grain, vanilla and a light bit of citrus peel.
Color: Yellowish Caramel
Notes: After being unavailable in the U.S. for 20 years, Diageo has decided to bring back the historical I.W. Harper label stateside this spring. They are planning to roll out a permanent brand line under I.W. Harper Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey.
