Here’s an example where American whiskey meets French Oak and it’s simply done right. Penelope Architect is a collaboration with Tonnellerie Radoux of France, the market leader in oak barrel manufacturing and innovation. Architect combines three of their bourbon mash bills composed of corn, rye, wheat, and malted barley and finishes off in two different types of French Oak Staves.
This whiskey is bottled at 52% ABV and has a mash bill of: 75% corn, 15% wheat, 7% rye and 3% malted barley.
Nose: sweet and crème brûlée
Palate: vanilla, oak and light spices
Finish: lightly sweet and spiced
This is a solid bottle of whiskey that’s done right and in such a unique way. You get sweetness, light spices and although at cask strength the bite doesn’t destroy your throat.
For the price, this whiskey is worth it. You get quality, innovation, and a product you’ll enjoy.
