Touching base with an old friend recently, he expressed his long love affair with Castle Long. It was an old profile that I hadn't visited in a very long time. Being who I am I couldn't resist a take on the old versions we've all tried and try to do something a bit bigger and a bit bolder with it.
The Coconut: While I'm fairly positive the original used TPA Coconut Extra, I feel like it goes too quickly to hand lotion without a ridiculously long steep, and it's just less forgiving. TPA Coconut Candy is creamier, sweeter, and frankly just better all around IMO. At 5% it's bold, bright, and doesn't fade behind the wall of other stuff we got going on here.
The Almond: It's two parts here, with TPA Toasted Almond leading the way, with some CAP Cereal 27 to back up the nutty background while also giving a faint bit of grain. The grain texture also serves to boost up the Red Oak in our Bourbon Layer
The Bourbon: TPA Kentucky Bourbon is still the most buildable bourbon on the market to me. At 2.5% it's plenty bold enough to come all the way through, with a little FA Whisky to give a fair bit of peaty bite to the top end. TPA Red Oak helps it hit those woody notes
The finisher: TPA Vanilla Swirl gives us a mild body at 1.5% and a fairly bright vanilla. Along with a healthy splash of TPA Brown Sugar we get a rounded sweetness without too much extra heavy background.
I hope you all enjoy this as much as I enjoyed creating it! Cheers!
This is my attempt at cornbread pudding by country clouds, not a million miles away, in my opinion it's better :)
There isn't really much to explain here... the yellow cake, cereal 27 and AP make up most of the cornbread while the maple syrup keeps it all moist and sticky... the Bavarian adds a slight Caramelization while also backing up the vanilla swirl to make a good thick pudding and then the super sweet just to keep up with the original but this is in no way of the same sweetness, my version is less sweet and cloying although still sweet enough to satisfy your sweet tooth.
