Blood Oath Pact VI is an ultra-premium bourbon released by Lux Row Distillers in Bardstown, Kentucky. The Blood Oath series is a creation by Low Row’s Head Distiller and Master Blender John Rempe. Pact No. 6 combines three selected bourbons that have been masterfully blended. The three bourbons that went into this special release includes a 14-year ryed bourbon, an 8-year old toasty ryed bourbon, and a 7-year ryed bourbon. This blend was then finished in Cognac Barrels. Blood Oath Pact No. 6 is a limited edition, never to be made again release
The bouquet is fresh, with notes of freshly mowed hay and lemon. Imagine springtime in a glass! Additional notes of caramel and oak are present as well. The palate is immediately inundated with delicious flavors of lemon runts, orange/citrus, raisins, nutmeg, and caramel. Unfortunately, these flavors fade quickly leaving behind a strong simple syrup/confectionery sugar taste. As previously mentioned, the flavors on this whiskey were quick to dissipate and left a lot to be desired. Faint hints of citrus, caramel, and nutmeg stick around on the finish.
