A Toast to Penelope: Bourbon, But Warmer

In 2018, the arrival of a baby girl named Penelope inspired Mike Paladini and his wife, Kerry, to celebrate life's joys, both big and small, through the creation of Penelope Bourbon. Alongside childhood buddy Danny Polise, they embarked on a bourbon-brewing adventure that’s as heartwarming as it is spirited. Now enjoyed across the U.S. and in three other countries, Penelope Bourbon stands as a testament to the belief that passion, dedication, and a touch of serendipity can concoct something truly exceptional. It’s like they say, every great idea starts with a few good friends and a baby on the way.

When Penelope Bourbon decided to dabble in toasted finishes, they stumbled upon a delicious accident - a variety that turned each bottle into a unique narrative of flavors. Their Toasted Barrel Finish Bourbon is an adventurous Spirit, matured in charred new American oak before being finished in freshly toasted barrels for that extra layer of warmth. Imagine a bourbon that wraps you in a blanket of vanilla with whispers of char and a wink of spice - that’s what they’re serving. At 100 proof and non-chill filtered, it's like the bourbon equivalent of sitting by a fire, recounting tales of serendipity and craftsmanship. With a mash bill that reads like a recipe for success, each bottle is a celebration of the unexpected joys that life (and a good barrel toast) can bring.

Because Life's Best Moments Are Toasted.

Appearance / Color

Golden hue.

Nose / Aroma / Smell

The nose is greeted with a medley of grainy notes, underscored by a distinct presence of charred wood and soot. Hints of vanilla play hide and seek, while raw dough and burnt sugars make a straightforward appearance. Spices like cinnamon and pepper add a bit of kick without any frills.

Flavor / Taste / Palate

On the palate, it doesn’t shy away from making a statement with a robust cinnamon spice upfront, mingled with subtler notes of cherry and cacao nibs. The experience deepens with dry, tannic qualities and echoes of barrel char, black pepper, burnt caramel, and a pronounced raw corn flavor, suggesting a youthfulness to its character.

Finish

The finish extends the theme of intensity with a persistent layer of soot, complemented by burnt marshmallows and charcoal. The grainy essence of the bourbon persists, rounding out the tasting experience.
