I was looking for nontraditional, unique flavor and I found it. Noble Oak is smooth, rich in flavor, and an easy sipping bourbon.

Noble Oak Bourbon is an award-winning double oak bourbon with a worthy purpose. After aging in new charred American oak barrels, this bourbon is then finished with hand selected sherry-seasoned European oak staves, creating a uniquely rich and layered flavor profile. Vibrant aromas of honey-drizzled cornbread, and dried fruits meet flavors of baked-pie, cinnamon, and nutmeg, closing with a warm and gentle finish. Noble Oak is an homage to the American and European oak trees that give this whiskey its warm and inviting profile; through an ongoing commitment to restore and preserve our natural green spaces, every bottle plants a tree in partnership with One Tree Planted.View all products by Noble OakCalifornia Residents: Click here for Proposition 65 WARNING

It's very peaty.

Caramel and vanilla notes. This is a slightly sweet and very smooth Bourbon that can’t be beat at the price. Very drinkable if you drink your whiskey neat

For the price this is outstanding

Very robust (dare I say bombastic) whiskey. Loads of smokey oak flavor, cherry sweetness, with a kick of spice. Smokey enough that it almost reminded me of a Islay scotch or even a smokey mescal. Warning: this is not a smooth and tender whiskey. It will knock your socks off. I love it, but it was too much for my wife. May be best on ice if you can't handle it straight. Could be good if you're looking for a really wild cocktail, but I think it's got enough going on that it's best to keep it simple and let shine.

Hot garbage. The oak taste is so immature and harsh. Don’t buy.

I enjoyed this I got a lot of cinnamon on the finish that lingered

Don't expect a traditional bourbon flavor

For under $40 I don't see how you can do better. It is described as 'double oaked' but it is not as strong a wood flavor as other heavily oaked brands. What really makes the flavor profile special are the sherry staves added during the aging process. Approx 90 proof so not over powering. Try it over small amount of ice. Outstanding!

Because of the liquor’s aging process variation, bourbon’s colors range from light amber to dark caramel and each bottle must contain at least 40% ABV. Bourbon can only be called bourbon if it’s aged in an oak barrel; barrels must be new and are pre-charred to help the liquid extract as much flavor as possible from the wood.
While both whiskey and bourbon are made from the same base ingredients (a predominantly corn mash, yeast and water), a spirit can only be called bourbon if it’s crafted in the United States, surpasses a minimum 40% ABV and is aged in new, charred, white oak barrels. Bourbons are generally on the younger side of the whiskey family (compared to older whiskies like scotch) and thus deliver a sweeter profile.
Raise a glass to science: While rye, barley and wheat all contain the gluten protein, the actual gluten is removed during the bourbon’s distillation process, in which the gluten molecules are separated from the actual distillate used to make the final product.
