The nose shows the barrel finishes this aromas of rum and Caberent with fresh grain, cinnamon,candy and fudge. The palate is silky in texture with again the barrel nuances coming through. Toffee, nuttiness and caramel give this a sweet quality but it is very savory. D&M Tasting Notes
10-year-old whiskey distilled in Indiana, finished in Dunn Vineyards Cabernet barrels
11-year-old bourbon distilled in Tennessee finished in black strap rum casks and LBV Port Pipes
Crafted and bottled in Kentucky
Dovetail is blended to highlight some of our favorite flavors. Woody bourbon; terroir driven Dunn Cabernet; toasted french oak; Late Bottled Vintage Port pipes; black strap molasses casks; all working in tandem to create a buttery and deep whiskey as unique as it is delicious. Dovetail took almost a year to get right, from blending to labeling, all coming together in a seemingly perfect point. Bottlers Notes
Neat: Appearance: Rose gold with highlights of worn copper.
Nose: Opens with mature aromas both sweet (canelé, panna cotta, crème de noyaux) and savory (walnut oil, leather). This is followed quickly by a vast array of fruit derived both from the spirit (smoked apricot, grapefruit peel) as well as the cask treatment (sloe gin, damson jam). The aroma is high toned, pungently floral and herbaceous, with subtle, balancing pops of minerality.
Palate: Darker (cocoa, molasses, burnt marshmallow) and spicier (cola, nutmeg, Tellicherry peppercorn) than the nose, an effect well-complemented by the cask treatment and rendered more complex by the savory and herbaceous themes running throughout.
Finish: A sweet and elegant signature of rose jelly, chestnut honey, and Pineau des Charantes that also features hazelnut, eucalyptus, and Corsican mint.
With a few drops of spring water
An unexpected avalanche of orange and tropical notes of watermelon, lychee and vanilla on the nose. Bottlers Notes
