Doc Swinson's Exploratory Cask Bossa Nova Bourbon Whiskey is a limited release bourbon finished in Brazilian Amburana Casks. When Brazil comes to mind we often think of the amazon rainforest, legendary football tournaments, white sand beaches that stretch as far as the eye can see - this exotic finish is exactly that!
A bountiful expression of butter cream, vanilla, and cinnamon notes will fill the room, transporting you to memories of fresh baked snicker-doodles coming out of the oven. Bossa Nova is a genre of Brazilian music inspired by samba and jazz and literally translates to "new wave." But the word "bossa" is also an old Brazilian slang word meaning something done with particular charm. We feel this "new charm" (Bossa Nova) was a fitting name for this bourbon whiskey finished in Brazilian amburana wood.
