Ode to Whisky

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.
