Belfour Spirits Texas Pecan Wood-Finished Bourbon, 46%

Price: $89 Issue: Summer 2020 Reviewer: David Fleming

Aged at least 18 months in new charred oak, then finished with Texas pecan wood staves added to the barrel. The nose offers melted caramel, buttered pecan, vanillin, oak, and subtle fruit. A soft palate has notes of baked plum tart, chocolate, figs, allspice, tea leaf, and dusty oak. The finish is spiced, with dark chocolate, light tobacco, and hefty but well-integrated oak. Bold and robust, with an abundance of flavors. (42,000 bottles)
