High N' Wicked The Honorable Straight Bourbon
High n’ Wicked, based in Jackson, Wyoming, was formed to present and develop unique American whiskies – releasing singular expressions annually that it deems worthy of its name. “The Honorable” is its first limited edition release. A 12 year old, 90 proof, Tennessee Straight Bourbon Whiskey finished for four months in Ex-California cabernet barrels. No additives, and non-chill filtered. Aged in New White Oak #4 Char for 11.8 Years and Finished in Ex-California Cabernet Sauvignon Wine Barrels for 4 months. Mash Bill: 84% Corn, 8% Rye, 8% Malt.
Aromas are rich and assertive – dark cherries, redcurrants, dried orange peel, cacao nibs, toffee, dried apricots and a touch of cedar. Palate is layered and full, with subtle complexities – red fruits and citrus on the open, evolving into ruby red grapefruit, cherries, cranberries, dried goji berries, and spearmint with hints of dark cocoa, leather and subtle baking spice notes – clove and allspice at the close. Finishes dry, full, and evolves in the glass. Silky and slightly tannic mouthfeel, inviting for the next sip.
