Jos A. Magnus & Co. 'Cigar Blend' Straight Bourbon Whiskey
A special edition bourbon from the Washington D.C. craft distillery that's been racking in awards and accolades from across the country. They take a nicely aged Indiana straight bourbon and finish it in three cask types (Oloroso, Pedro Ximinez and Cognac) before blending and bottling at 100.7 proof. The "Cigar Blend" is then blended with 11 and 18 year old whiskeys, and is indeed designed with the aim of enjoying a bourbon "that can hold its own alongside a fine cigar." Distiller's tasting notes: "Bold, rich aromas of tobacco, spice, leather, vanilla, blanched almonds, and toffee. The Armagnac cask finish lends fruity notes of fig, prune, and dried apricot.
