Double Gold Bourbons // Original & Murray Hill Club // Set of 2 // 750 ml Each
Joseph A. Magnus believed in producing nothing short of perfection. Magnus bottled his first spirit in 1892—advertising his Murray Hill Club Whiskey as a "particular spirit for particular people." Despite great success, National Prohibition caused him to pause whiskey production and the recipe was eventually lost. Nearly a century later, one of Magnus’ great-grandsons discovered a few carefully preserved bottles of 122-year-old Murray Hill Club Whiskey tucked away and forgotten. This inspired the family to gather industry veterans who could taste, test, and reproduce the lost recipe. The experts were stunned to discover it was one of the greatest bourbons they had ever tasted. Today, Magnus Master Blender, Nancy Fraley uses the same blending and finishing techniques Joseph Magnus employed over 100 years ago to produce a highly-acclaimed spirit as close as possible to the original.
The Joseph Magnus Bourbon is a marriage of straight bourbon whiskey aged in white oak barrels and finished in Oloroso sherry, Pedro Ximénez sherry, and cognac casks. Expressive and enticing, the nose starts off with scents of orange rind drizzled with light honey, along with a rush of ripe plums and other dark fruits. Diving in deeper reveals hints of buttercream frosted cake, light leather, and the slightest hint of ethanol. The triple cask finish is apparent, as the mingling of scents is unique yet distinguished, providing a thought-provoking complexity and a great way to open the sip.
The sip starts with sweeter notes of cherry pie filling, vanilla, and brown sugar. Dark fruits pop behind and help bridge the transition to drier notes of oak and leather. The fact that this bourbon touched four different barrels seems to be more prominent here, as the drier notes become more dominating the longer you swirl the sip around in your mouth. The drier flavors from the palate slide into the finish to round things out. Green peppercorn, oak, leather, and a hint of tobacco leaf immediately pop. These morph into a lingering dry oak with a slight hint of medicinal cherry similar to a cough drop.
