Bayou XO Mardi Gras is the festive spirit of Louisiana.
Matured in bourbon barrels for up to 6 years using the Solera aging method and partially finished in sherry barrels.
A deep mahogany complexion with a stone fruit, plum and sandalwood on the nose, this complex spirit delivers orange marmalade and dark stone fruit with bursts of black currant and tupelo honey. Rounding out with a long, rich touch of smoke this 6 year old spirit lingers like the early morning mist that can only come from the Delta of Louisiana.
Nose - Slightly floral mixed with cedar wood, tobacco and dried dark fruit.
Palate - Multi-layered and complex with hints of tobacco, prune and oak along with slight sweetness reminiscent of tupelo honey.
Finish - Long and pleasantly dry with honey, black pepper and sherry.
