Name: Koval Single Barrel Bourbon
Notes: On the nose Koval single barrel bourbon has a very upfront and straightforward fruit scent to it. At first sip there is a burst of fresh fruit, most noticeably apricot, followed by more sweet flavors like caramel, vanilla, and maple syrup. Although sweet and with plenty of fruit flavors there are also some good spice flavors as well such as black pepper, tobacco, and leather. The finish is moderate with apricot flavors and some subtle earthy flavors and a slight burn. I really enjoyed this bourbon. It was definitely one that has unique flavors and is using some unique ingredients. The apricot flavor didn’t taste artificial and the tobacco and leather flavors added some complexity. Overall, I would definitely recommend this whiskey to a friend. In my opinion this one is best enjoyed neat.
