Blood Oath #8 is upon us, and as all the time the “pact” continues to evolve. This yr’s model begins with a 14-year ryed bourbon and an 11-year ryed bourbon, then they mix within the twist: an 8-year ryed bourbon completed in Calvados casks.

I like this whiskey fairly a bit. Whereas apple brandy can have a large — and generally jarring — influence on whiskey, right here it enhances issues fairly properly, and superbly. The nostril is wealthy and enveloping, by no means actually evoking apple flavors however somewhat punching exhausting on basic notes of the rickhouse — woody, well-charred, with faint notes of fruit, virtually like blackberry, off within the distance. The palate is wealthy with a shocking and fast word of darkish chocolate, which initially feels virtually exclusionary to the opposite flavors buried within the dram. Quickly that blackberry fruit character turns into clearer, punctuated with notes of caramel, butterscotch, and a few baking spice. The apple you’ve been ready for comes into focus on the very finish, the end evoking extra apple crumble than contemporary apple (and even apple pie), wealthy caramel laced all through.

I had reserved expectations for this apple brandy-finished bourbon however was joyful to search out it partaking from begin to end, ultimately kicking into the next gear because it develops superbly in glass. Among the finest Blood Oath bottlings thus far.

98.6 proof. 51,000 bottles produced.
