Yellowstone Limited Edition Kentucky Straight Bourbon, a marriage of some of the finest hand-selected bourbon available, celebrates the return of Yellowstone to the family of Limestone Branch founders Steve and Paul Beam – and the many fine bourbons to come. This is a bourbon for someone who knows bourbon and enjoys a dry, tannic oak profile. If tasted blind you would guess it was much older based on taste alone. Sharing with someone with a distinct flavor profile preference that aligns with this release is important. Lesser developed plates are likely to find it too bitter and oaky.
Nose: Vanilla Almond Creme, Coffee. Dusty Cocoa, Toasted Oak
Taste: Sweet Honey Vanilla, Leather
Finish: At first your tongue is greeted by a nice sweet dollop of honey and vanilla but it’s quickly replaced by a bitter blast of leather and oak. Once that begins to fade it’s replaced by cinnamon and mint–thanks to the rye forward bourbons–that evolves into a dry oak finish.
