Cyrus Noble Small Batch Bourbon

75% corn, 17% rye, and 8% malted barley. 45% abv. The nose is smooth and mild with notes of caramel, honey, vanilla, soft spices, and a hint of hazelnut. On the palate, the texture is silky, with allspice, honey, toffee, and caramel notes. The finish is soft and spicy with a honeyed sweetness that hangs around for a bit. Nice as a sipper, or maybe over a couple rocks with a dash of bitters. Cyrus Noble was first crafted in 1871 and soon became the spirit of choice for miners trying to strike it rich during the San Francisco gold rush. The popularity of this whiskey soon had it in every miner's saloon, upscale home, and bar - a fixture on the Western front. Haas Bothers of San Francisco, a retailer who's been around 160 years and the major grocer that first put Cyrus Noble into the hands of its customers, is keeping the tradition of the 140 year recipe. The original mash bill is contract distilled and aged at Heaven Hill distillery in Kentucky, then blended and bottled by Haas Brothers in San Francisco.
