Garrison Brothers introduces the exquisite Laguna Madre 2023, a LIMOUSIN OAK-IMMERSED STRAIGHT BOURBON with a proof of 101. This limited release is not just any bourbon; it's a testament to eight years of meticulous craftsmanship, making it the oldest bourbon the distillery has produced to date. Seasoned in the rare and highly prized Limousin oak casks from France, this bourbon is a symphony of flavors. The toasting of this majestic oak unveils rich notes of woody vanilla, sweet candy cacao, and luscious white chocolate. The finish is creamy and aromatic, evoking memories of a serene day, perhaps under the early afternoon sunlight, where the Laguna Madre glistens like a band of azure aquamarine. On the palate, one can expect an intense burst of A&W Root Beer, complemented by hints of vanilla bean, hazelnut, saltwater taffy, Hershey’s Kisses, and frosty white chocolate. The finale is reminiscent of an 'Adults only' Almond Joy candy bar, all at a robust 101 proof. Unique to this bourbon is its creamy mouthfeel, akin to smooth almond butter. The journey of Laguna Madre began in 2014, culminating in 2016 when the spirit was lovingly placed into Limousin oak barrels. These barrels, sourced from the central forests of France, are revered for their high vanillin and tylose lignin content. Only trees that have graced the earth for 120 years or more are chosen, and the oak is split to follow the wood’s natural sap channels, enhancing its resistance to leakage. For those fortunate to experience this bourbon, it promises a journey of flavors and memories, best shared with loved ones on special occasions.
