Tasting Notes: Thomas S. Moore Port Cask Bourbon
Vital Stats: The port casks expression is 98.9 proof with no age statement, an undisclosed mashbill and a $70 MSRP.
Appearance: Deep ruby red.
Nose: Obviously the port wine is upfront and center. Dark cherries, worn leather, rich oak, raisins and truffles.
Palate: Thick and heavy, with a cooling effect almost like life savor mints. A slight cinnamon and cloves spice follows. There is an earthiness of white truffles and Turkish figs.
Finish: Medium to long with a light Kentucky hug. A very complex finished whiskey that just keeps giving.
Overall: An amazing sipper that is obviously a buy for both Jim and Big Chief. A great bourbon to introduce wine drinkers to the bourbon culture. It would pair nicely after a beautiful Italian meal with a good cigar.
