Southern Wind

Did you know our Isaac Bowman Port Barrel Finished Virginia Straight Bourbon Whiskey is aged in charred white oak barrels, then finished in port barrels? This technique and combination of finishing barrels produce flavors of jam with caramel and spice notes, perfect for this flavorful, Southern Wind bourbon cocktail. The combination of the buttery smooth nuttiness of the pecan syrup and the garden-fresh, tempting sweet scent of honeysuckle makes this cocktail pretty to look at, pleasing to your palate, and tantalizing for your sense of smell.
