The velvety burn, subtle notes of apricot and caramel, finished with an essence of spice-peppered aged oak



Carve me out
raw and hollow
splay open hidden crevices
exposing
a sweetened well kept rage
 
Tastebuds flux, tingling
instant endorphin rush
a rippling soft crush
slow pours... over open wounds

indistinguishable hushed-howls
 painful 'lil pleasures
bold heated ecstasy
  slow sips
 gingerly savored

Twisted aromatics—
time strengthened tenacity
aged perfectly,
warm lips in spiced caress

A scintilla of sticky mouthfeel
gently sashays tongue swept sensation
rallying gumption
-stars haze to burnt-orange glaze-

Mysteries unfold
as legs and shoulders
release harbored up old

"On the rocks, please,"...

... flows free the bourbon gold.

Purists would look down on the order of 'on the rocks', but I really like the punch of initial flavor and then deeply enjoy the mellowing the ice cubes give it.

On hand, in the very infrequently used liquor cabinet— Buffalo Trace and Maker's Mark. Woodford Reserve is my special occasion go to ... but I like exploring new flavors/distilleries, too.
