Bardstown Bourbon Company 'Phifer Pavitt Cabernet Sauvignon Cask Finish' Straight Bourbon Whiskey

$164.95

To hear Suzanne Phifer Pavitt talk about this collaboration with Bardstown Bourbon Company one might think she has been in the whiskey business for years. Her passion for this project is palpable. Phifer Pavitt Date Night Cabernet is a hit among the Napa Valley insiders and her wines have amassed quite the ravenous following. She was approached about using her barrels to finish some great bourbon as a part of Bardstown Bourbon Company’s first collaborative effort and she leaped at the chance. She shipped off a truck load of freshly emptied wine barrels in a refrigerated truck that were then filled with 9-year old Tennessee bourbon. Checking in regularly, Steve Nally and the folks at BBC sent samples out to Suzanne every couple of months, and eventually they all agreed this whiskey has hit its sweet spot! This is a limited edition and the first of its kind, sort of like getting in on the ground floor of the next brand poised to take over the world. We hope you enjoy this with those closest to you!

The long Cabernet barrel finish offers an exceptional layer of flavor and complexity. The aromas are highlighted by caramel covered raspberries and hints of baking spice. Toasted oak and dried fruits are present on the entry and mid-palate, with accents of honey and sarsaparilla. You’ll find a deep finish with hints of cocoa, spice, and caramel.
