Amburana is a type of oak that comes from Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Paraguay, and Peru. According to Barrell, they are challenging to work with, as they impart strong cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and vanilla spice notes.

Brand Tasting Notes: An intense baking spice character centered around cinnamon fills every nook and cranny of the tasting experience. It’s a veil through which one experiences the aromas of chocolate, walnut, and toasted sourdough. The palate also has a narrative driven by cinnamon and spicy ginger beer with cameos from marmalade, tarragon, and hefeweizen. A healthy splash of water foregrounds passionfruit, goldenrod, and honeycomb.
Holly’s Tasting Notes: Honey nut cheerios but creamy so those Cheerios with milk, lemon-lime, and vanilla ice cream. The palate is again honey nut cashews, coconut, tanning body oil, and a really wild texture. A very rich whiskey!
