Gather ‘Round for a Fireside Chat on Bourbon

Imagine yourself nestled in a cozy armchair, the crackling of a fire tunes in with the symphony of nighttime, while the crickets outside compose the baseline. In your hand, a glass of Fireside Straight Bourbon, reflecting the dance of the flames—an amber invitation to a journey of warmth and spice. Let’s dive into a bottle of this liquid gold, shall we?

The Warm Up: A Nose Full of Delight

Pour yourself a dram, bring it up to your nose and pause. Take in that fragrant prelude of red hot candies—oh yes, the ones that play tag on your tongue—partnered with a bouquet of baking spice. It’s a nostalgic playground, isn’t it? The initial whiffs build anticipation, a promise of stories untold. But wait, there’s more! The subtlety of lightly toasted oak and elusive hints of chocolate shavings round out the aroma giving that nicely spiced profile. You’re not just smelling bourbon now; you’re reminiscing your childhood with a sophisticated twist.

The Tasting Tale: Palate Pleasures

Take a sip, that first, tentative foray into the heart of the bourbon. Here, you’re met with an embrace of cinnamon spices, a tinge of dry charred oak that whispers secrets of the barrel’s past lives. Each sip unfolds with layers—as any good story should. Notes of light baking chocolate play off the dryness of a well-worn leather book cover. You can almost hear it creak as you delve deeper. Hints of dry nuts intermingle, adding complexity to the already intriguing narrative on your palate, dry and full of spice as our favorite mystery novel.

Epilogue: A Finish with Flair

And like any memorable tale, it’s the ending that lingers, and oh, what an ending this bourbon provides. A finale resplendant with a chocolate malt flourish fringed by an oak backbone. The rye spice adds a plot twist that keeps you on your toes, and a trace of Mexican chocolate hints at adventures in distant lands or perhaps just a jaunt to your local chocolatier. The spicy oak flavor lingers, a satisfying denouement to an epicurean escapade.

The Master Behind the Magic: Mile High Spirits

The alchemists behind this potion—Mile High Spirits Denver. Crafting more than just spirits, they create experiences, stories in a bottle, shared among friends or savored solo. They’re not just serious about bourbon; they’re passionate. You can taste that dedication, that Mile High mirth in every sip. “We take our spirits seriously, but not ourselves,” they say, and what a refreshing philosophy it is! They’ve aged their charm alongside these barrels, mellowing, becoming more fascinating, just like their spirits.

A Sippable Sequel: The Next Chapter in Aging

The last rendezvous with the Fireside Straight Bourbon Single Barrel left us at the tender age of four years, already a captivating concoction. But just as time turns the greenest grape to the finest of wines, an extra year in those enigmatic oak barrels has deepened its tales, drawing forth that single barrel whiskey magic, a maturation that even the mightiest oak would envy.

The Bottle Biography: Barrel 17A11 5G.6

This isn’t just any bourbon; it’s a chronicle of barrel 17A11 5G.6—a number not to be forgotten. It’s the code to a sensory safe where flavors are treasures and each person’s palate, a unique key. Each bottle, a piece of Mile High history, is a story waiting to unfold on your taste buds.

The Craft of Chocolate Malt

The pièce de résistance? The chocolate malt finish. It’s as if a maestro decided to play a concerto on your palate—a blend of barley and chocolate notes, tuning the flavor profile like strings on a violin, creative in its inception, harmonious in its delivery.

Curtain Call: Will You Take A Bottle Home?

Come one, come all to the fireside gathering; the bourbon is poured, the flames are high, and the company is eager. The Fireside Bourbon Review is in, and the verdict? It’s a tapestry of flavor woven with threads of spice, stories, and a dash of Denver maverick. It’s the kind of bourbon that reminds you—you’re not just drinking whiskey; you’re imbibing tales of the past and toasting to the future.

So here’s to Fireside Straight Bourbon, to single barrel whiskey bliss, to those spicy oak flavors, and that irresistible chocolate malt finish.
