Medium toast bourbon barrel oak chips bring an aromatic sweetness and complex array of other flavoursome compounds, including, vanilla, caramel, brown sugar and toasty notes with a nice mouthfeel.
The charring process caramelizes the wood sugars in the oak and when soaked on spirits provides rich colour, smooth texture, and sweet notes within 10 days. The extra surface area of the chips intensives the flavour and colour and reduces the soaking time.
Our AHB Bourbon Chips are imported directly from the USA and made from genuine American bourbon barrels that have been aging Bourbon for between 4 to 8 years. If you enjoy Wild Turkey then you will love our Gobblers recipe below.
