Shenk's Homestead 2019 Kentucky Sour Mash Whiskey Tasting Notes
Nose: The nose opens with notes of barrel char and burnt caramel, followed by leather, cacao, a faint touch of red fruit, and faint orange peel oils.
Palate: The palate opens with an explosion of thick dark chocolate and maple syrup that is followed by notes of sweet toasted oak, earthy baking spices, orange oils, and charred oak as you continue to chew.
Finish: The finish carries on from the palate opening with notes of bitter dark chocolate, toasted oak spice, drying oak tannins, and leaves an herbaceous aftertaste of charred oak and orange oil.
Bomberger's Distillery, more recently Michter's Distillery, is a non-operating distillery facility that was, at the end of the twentieth century, believed to be the oldest remaining such building in the United States. The distillery closed in 1989 and may have since been demolished.
