Single barrel whiskeys are an expression of distinction and power. Every cask is different. Many make good ingredients, but only some possess the particular character and balance to make a worthy single barrel bottling.
Cygnus B8 comes in strong with notes of Honey Nut Cheerios, sourwood honey, ripe pineapple, apricot, orange zest, spearmint, white pepper, butterscotch, and a hint of tarragon on the nose. The palate starts with caramel popcorn, salted dark chocolate, sourwood honey followed by cinnamon, spearmint, dark cherry, burnt orange, and a touch of guajillo chiles and roasted pecans.
