An American Malted Bourbon Alternative that is demonstrative of the strength, smoke and burn of the sometimes-ravaging Western Cape fires in South Africa that tear through the vegetation but in turn provides the lifeblood of the survival and propagation of the Cape Floral Kingdom. Add some ice and top with soda or mix with ginger ale and a squeeze of lime. The Epilogue X is also the perfect partner for a malt&cola alternative. As a cocktail it works great as a Manhattan or Old Fashioned.
Peated and Blended Malts, Oak, Honeybush, Vanilla, Cassia, American Oak
A homage to the classic, mellowed American Bourbon Malt, the Abstinence Epilogue X is a blend of peated, smoked and dark toasted malt that is meticulously married with a combination of distilled spice botanicals and South African Honeybush. Amber in colour, this dark spirit pairs well with soda, ice, ginger ale or cola in a tumbler over ice. Also great for an Old Fashioned and Manhattan.
With vanilla and smoked peat on the nose, the Epilogue X delivers a mouth-coating, full smoke and faintly honied distilled spirit with a lingering mouthfeel. Sweet notes from the Honeybush and toasted American Oakwood marries beautifully with subtle spice on the palate, finishing with a slight burn in the aftertaste.
