Beverage Testing Institute Review
Bright amber orange color. Warm caramel, roasted nut, and white pepper aromas. A round entry leads to a supple medium-full palate of baked Grannysmith apple and bosc pear, honey, lemon tea, and burnt sugar flavors. Finishes with a warm, pureed autumn fruit, toasted oak, and brown spice fade. An interesting combination of apple pastry and whisky flavors that would would make a hearty Apple Martini or unique Manhattan.
The distinctive flavors of several varieties of New York State's finest apples will provide the backdrop to the subtle whiskey finale. After blending, the Apple Whiskey is racked into used bourbon barrels for additional aging. The barrels will add the oak, raisin, and vanilla finish in this handcrafted American Whiskey. The mix of the sweet and tart apples balance perfectly with the charred oak finish, making the Leopold Bros. New York Apple Whiskey the ultimate small batch after dinner drink, much like a fine cordial or dessert wine.
