Côtes de Blaye, Bordeaux, France
70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon & 10% Malbec
Beckoning aromas of stewed black berry, black currant, and violets pave the way for a secondary rush of spice, licorice, vanilla, dark fruits and silky tannins. Open a bottle with barbacoa beef tacos or rosemary rubbed pork chops with roasted fingerling potatoes. The grapes from this tasty Bordeaux come from the oldest vines of Chateau Peybonhomme and can easily age for another 10 years.

This is a flavor bomb of a Bourbon. Concentrated caramel coats the palate from the first sip right into the finish accented with mouthwatering hints of espresso, clove and orange peel. This is a custom blend commissioned by spirits maverick Nicolas Palazzi of PM spirits. He's defiantly transparent about where the whiskey is sourced— Indiana's MGP— a blend of 20 casks, the cask number even appears on the back label. Limited edition, 3,358 bottles total.
There's really nothing quite like Noah's Mill. It is a unique bourbon for many different reasons. Each bottling contains whiskey hand selected and blended from barrels ranging from 4 to 20 years old. These barrels all contain bourbons of an array of mash bills, meaning the content of the finished product is somewhat of a mystery. All of this careful selection and blending of mysterious old barrels clearly pays off when you experience the finished product. It is a bold whirlwind of rich, complex, unusual flavors one after another. Toffee, coffee, vanilla, raisins, and a blast of spice on the nose. Flavors of dark dried fruits like figs and raisins combine with a distinct dark chocolate, coffee note and a pecan nuttiness. Fresh ginger and dried orange peels liven things up a bit before the spices kick in. Needless to say, this is a very bold bourbon and not for the faint of heart.

"Spice-accented aromas of dark berries and cherry take on a spicy nuance as the wine opens up. Bitter cherry, cassis and succulent herb flavors deepen and become sweeter on the back half, which is energized by a jolt of white pepper. Closes juicy, taut and long; sneaky tannins lend shape and firming grip."
