The artwork on the label was done by Philip Hua
, who uses mixed media printing and collage techniques to juxtapose the duality between commerce and nature. His work features water colored painted images of animals or plants that he layers on top of finance charts. HODL
is an acronym, popularized in the crypto and meme stock era of finance which stands for, "H
n for D
ife". The work is used on two different single cask expressions of 8 year high-rye bourbon, the oldest bottled to date by Subtle Spirits.
- #22 (red wax) - finished in a French Oak Cabernet cask for 18 months
Beautiful dark garnet color. Loads of vanilla on the nose, with notes of milk chocolate & stewed berries. Deep, rich and brooding on the palate with a smooth finish that keeps on going.
Dark golden color. Lots of floral and fruit aromas on the nose, with notes of dried apricot, caramel & orange blossom. Bold and spicy on the palate with savory flavors of tobacco and baking spices on the finish.
