A bold Bourbon blend from Kentucky finished in California Chardonnay casks.

Trincero Family Estates was founded more than seventy years ago by Italian immigrants when Mario Trincero and his brother John moved to Napa Valley, California, from New York to purchase the Sutter Home Winery. The family business has expanded rapidly since then through solid management, organic growth, acquisition, and innovation — including inventing the White Zinfandel Wine category in 1971. Today they encompass brands of Wine and six brands of distilled Spirits — including Ménage à Trois, Sutter Home, Napa Cellars, Amardor Whiskey Co., Tres Agaves Tequila, and dozens more.

Amador Whiskey Co. partners with some of the top Whiskey distilleries in Kentucky to create limited edition, luxury Whiskies. Amador Double Barrel Bourbon is a blend of prime Bourbon aged for three and a half years in new oak. Those casks are shipped to the Trincero facility in Napa where the Spirit is finished in French oak barrels that were used to rest Napa Cellars Chardonnay for another six months — equally four full years in wood. The resulting Spirit is bottled at 43.4% ABV.

Smartass Corner:
Amador Whiskey Co. should not be confused with Amador Distillery. Both are located in California but are unrelated.

Corner
Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color
Hot Amber

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma has a wonderful note of buttermilk biscuits with warm butter over notes of vanilla, cinnamon, espresso, and interesting florals.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The palate is bold with a nice spice up front followed by a wonderfully complex flavor profile of Cracker Jacks, baking spices, sultanas, more florals, a dash of cocoa, and a hint of smoke.

Finish
The finish is long and a bit dry on the back palate.

Morgan
Morgan,
Great either neat or as an ingredient for a Manhattan or Old Fashion. It’s flavorful and balances well with added ingredients. It could be a great staple to your collection.

Jake,
I found this to be very delicious. Oaky and Smooth with subtle hints of the white wine cask. Highly recommend if you enjoy oaky bourbon.
 
Dru

Very good. Smooth taste and feel.
 
Alex
Alex,
An outstanding performer & surprise for the price point. The spice/smoke coupled with the sweet/slightly bitter notes of the cocoa, raisins, & dried fruit make this whisky a must try for all palates. You’ll more than likely buy yourself a bottle of you do.

Mark,
This was really tasty, really nice smooth finish with very small Chardonnay notes on the end. When you read the description you don’t think it will work but it really does. Shared it with a few friends
 
Erik
Erik,
The initial taste I had was very much a bourbon super smooth, not overwhelming strong but definitely recognizable. This was my first double barrel that was not a double oak and I think I may have enjoyed this more! This I one that I will definitely share with as many friends as possible!

Awesome Taste...some spice
 
Scott
Scott,
So far, I’ve only sipped it neat though there are some intriguing cocktails in the booklet banded to the neck. It’s wonderful sipped by itself, almost to the point where mixing it in a cocktail would be sacrilege.
