Joseph Magnus Cigar Blend Bourbon Whiskey - 750ml
Due to the barrel finishing in Armagnac, Cognac, and sherry casks, Joseph Magnus Cigar Blend appears a dark amber in the glass. Spice notes of nutmeg and allspice drive the nose of Joseph Magnus Cigar Blend bourbon, while dark, sweeter notes of tobacco, leather, and plum balance the aroma. After resting in a Glencairn glass, the spice notes lighten and mingle with the sweeter notes, and a seasoned oak note becomes detectable. For the front of the palate, classic bourbon notes of vanilla, caramel and toffee dominate. Due to the finishing casks, things get interesting in the mid-palate. Specifically, the finishing casks add dark fruit notes of plum and prune, while a light spiced note of seasoned oak finishes out the mid-palate and carries over to the finish. The seasoned oak spice note mingles with and over powers the dark fruit notes on the finish and results in a long, dry, light spice and dark fruit finish.
