This inaugural release of the Stellum Black Specialty Equinox was created using Stellum Bourbon. The spirit was slowly layered in rare sets of bourbon barrels, step by step, until the evening of the Vernal Equinox, when the blend was completed in honor of the changing season.
GSN’s Remarks: Coming out of the bottle at a staggering 117.26% proof, this is nonetheless an extremely quaffable spirit. Rich, enveloping sweetness is liberally doused with a heady charred oak profile. There’s a lot going on here with the flavor mix. Baking spices, sweet corn, chewy brown bread, young tobacco, toasted muffin, and light cinnamon all work as a cohesive unit. The finish is long and ends on a toffee note. All in all, another sure-fire winner from Stellum. GSN Rating: A
