Last month I wrote to all of you about a gem of a barrel pick from New Riff that had fallen through the cracks and needed to be gone before our new barrel arrived. I’m pleased to say your response was everything we could have hoped for. Of the 20+ cases we had all but two sold within the month. Over and over, however, the same question was asked. What about the barrel that started the drive to sell off our stock in the first place? When is the new barrel arriving? Well, the time is now. Our latest pick from New Riff has arrived, and I honestly believe this is our best collaboration with New Riff yet.
This bourbon pours a rich amber gold and features the kind of legs every whiskey lover hopes for in a dram. On the nose you are tempted with notes of wildflower honey, dairy cream, and hints of dark fruit. The palate brings to mind freshly made French Toast, caramel crème, and lavender syrup with a finish that lingers for several minutes… assuming you can hold off your next sip that long. This is a decadent pour but never comes off as overly sweet or syrupy and is an absolute steal for only $49.99. Come in for a couple bottles today. If your response to our hidden gem was any clue then I’d say this diamond of a bourbon will not be long for our shelves.
