Blood Oath Pact No. 7 Sauternes Finished, 49.3%

Price: $100 Issue: Fall 2021 Reviewer: David Fleming

A blend of 14 year old and two 8 year old bourbons, with one of the 8 year olds finished in sauternes casks. Fragrant, with mature oak, honey-roasted peanuts, sassafras, citrus, and sandalwood. A dense chewy palate, but without an overly heavy oak influence. Coffee beans, black cherry jam, and dark chocolate notes, with water adding cola, ginger, candle wax, and winter spice. Chocolate malt, blueberry pie, toffee, and spice on the finish.
