 Stellum  Bourbon finds its flavor in the tension of three Indiana Bourbon mash  bills, two of which are high-rye, with the third being almost  exclusively corn. Older barrels from both Kentucky and Tennessee are  folded in slowly, through a multi-step blending process. This brings  added layers of depth and complexity, ultimately allowing us to round  out a uniquely Stellum flavor profile. 

Nose: Intense  clove and allspice immediately jump out of the glass, supported by  creamy macadamia nuts and light tobacco. As the whiskey opens up, sweet  aromas of honeysuckle, green apple, and nectarine begin to show, rounded  off by toasted rye and oak.   

Palate: The  tip of your tongue is met with a hint of vanilla, marshmallow, and  cotton candy. The whiskey quickly transforms as it spreads across your  tongue, revealing spicy notes of black pepper, cayenne pepper, and  cinnamon baked apples. The spice is supported by tart underripe  blackberry and apricot that contrasts perfectly against the initial  sweetness. 

With the Addition of Water: The  strong pepper notes are more subdued, allowing for sweet cinnamon  streusel and stewed apples to come to the forefront of the palate.
