In celebration of Valentine’s Day I send an Ode to my favorite spirit. Take a guess at which variant captures my heart!
Color rich in liquid caramel,
Upon the tongue an oak aged swell.
The nose – a honeyed vanilla hint,
Revealing layers of a sweetening scent.
A taste bursting with silky layers,
Intoxicating with full bodied flavor.
Casks of new oak, sherry and bourbon carried,
Until finally the Solera uniquely married.
A complex spirit of the fifteenth year,
Only found within the valley of the deer.
