Hand-selected from a limited collection of well-seasoned barrels, this rare 13 Year Bourbon is hand-blended in very small batches. Bottled at cask strength, Cinder & Smoke retains the full essence of flavour that only comes with time. The angels carried most of the spirit away….the rest is yours. The Bard Distillery may be young but it has deep roots. Set in the bones of a beautiful 1920’s school site, the distillery watches over the historic coal-mining town of Graham, in Muhlenberg County Kentucky. Distiller and Engineer Thomas Bard is the 4th Great-Grandson of William Bard, one of two brothers who founded Bardstown, Kentucky - the Bourbon Capital of the World. The Bard name has been synonymous with the world’s best spirits for over 200 years.
Nose: Sweet corn and grassy notes signal the expected, traditional bourbon notes of vanilla, butterscotch and Christmas spices. The nose develops with time into a rich, sweet fragrance. Not much smoke - surprising given the name.
Palate: Sweet corn starts things off but is quickly replaced by a predominant oakiness. Luckily there is plenty of rich treacle, baking spices and white pepper to balance that off - particularly in the mid-palate.
Finish: Medium-long with a creamy mouthfeel. The baking spice lingers with hints of toasted grain, vanilla and dried citrus peel at the end.
