Black & Gold 11yo Bourbon
Black & Gold is a particularly snazzy bourbon which has enjoyed 11 years of maturation, allowing it to develop a rewarding, complex and overall excellent flavour profile. It was aged in slowly-charred barrels, and it was that charring that helped to introduce brilliantly bold notes of brown sugar, decadent vanilla and rich cigar box. As the bottle says, "Fire made it good". The casks were hand-selected, and it's fairly clear why they were picked - this bourbon is spectacular indeed. The bottle also happens to be incredibly handsome too, which is always a bonus.
