Bourbon Thoughts: I.W. Harper Kentucky Straight Bourbon

September 10th marks the 10th anniversary of National Bourbon Heritage Month, passed by the U.S. Senate in 2007.  Commemorate the day with your favorite pour or do what we did and try something new – I.W. Harper.

The nose is rich with caramelized fruits and vanilla.  The taste is not as rich as the aroma with spice and some raw alcohol notes taking over the sweetness.  The finish is a lit thin but it is a nice balance overall.
