    10 May

    De Wine Spot, Lorimer Street, Brooklyn, NY, USA

    May 10, 2018

    6:30 pm To 9:30 pm

    Come by De Wine Spot for a bourbon and rye whiskey tasting. They will be tasting “Barrell Bourbon Batch #014”, “Barrell Rye Batch #002” and “Wathen’s Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey” from 6:30-9:30. RSVP for free admission!

    Barrell Bourbon Batch #014

    A vivid honey, raisin and fall fruit flavor with an underlying bed of baking spices is the first impression. Those flavors are quickly followed by a creamy texture with a citrus curd. The finish is long with an elusive combination of almond paste and black pepper.

    Barrell Rye Whiskey Batch #002

    Nose: The earthy base underscores complex sparks of other aromas. Initial Linzertorte, Ovaltine and s’mores chocolate notes are followed by spicy hints of cardamom, gingerbread, and dried currants. With time, violet and orchid floral phrases surface counterbalanced by savory roasted cashew.
    Palate: Cinnamon and malt lead a strong, spicy arrival balanced by pops of bright lemon zest, sweet caramel, and soft mulling spices.
    Finish: The palate is left with waves of black pepper and seawater salinity in a gently smoldering ball of spices.

    Wathen’s Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey

    Wathen’s Kentucky Bourbon is a premium Kentucky Bourbon created by Charles W. Medley using the same recipe and techniques that have been handed directly and unchanged through eight generations of the Wathen and Medley families. The two families combined their unwavering commitment to quality with the conditions and ingredients of the region to produce Kentucky’s finest straight bourbon whiskey.
