It so happens that the extraordinary rich sensory proﬁle of the scent from tobacco leaves contains special smell molecules that are created during the fermentation stage of the whiskey and Bourbon production process. This explains the occurrence of tobacco (un-smoked) and tobacco leaf scents in a Bourbon. It would be impossible for an Aroma Scientist to achieve a full analysis of the complex aroma molecule proﬁle of the aroma we present in this kit unless they had unlimited access to not only the best equipment but also virtually unlimited funding.
It is this complexity of molecular composition that gives rise to the striking sensory richness of this particular Bourbon aroma. The effect of this aroma composition in a ﬁne Bourbon is chieﬂy sensed as a feeling of aroma richness. Tobacco heralds the memory of spicy, peppery warm aromas.
