Notes: Rotating availibility. For this small, unique batch, we blended and aged George and Arthur in a bourbon barrel for nine months, and then further aged the blend atop fresh, local persimmons sourced by nearby Elmore Roots Nursery. 375ml.

This one pours a dark-ish rusted brown color, with a small head, and a little bit of lacing. It's not a great look.

On the nose, the George part of the blend comes through very strongly, much stronger than the Arthur part of the blend. There's some spicy fruitiness, honey, citrus, caramel, smoke, and bourbon.

This is probably the weirdest blend made for this series yet, but it strangely works. I'm not super familiar with persimmons, but I do get a fruit character that feels spicy, dark, and slightly citrusy. There's some honey and caramel sweetness from the George, and a nice dose of bourbon spice on the finish. The Arthur comes through slightly with this nice funk on the back end. It's an intriguing blend that works really well.

This is medium bodied, slightly creamy, with a good level of drinkability.

This is very odd - I honestly don't know how Shaun Hill dreamt this one up. With that being said- it really does work. It's a unique treat.
