Coconut Bourbon Candle
Rich notes of bourbon with a light top note of coconut. If you like a blend of sweet and dry scents, this one is for you! It's got a slightly warm scent but still on the woodsy end of scents. The coconut adds a subtle tone to the candle, definitely not overwhelming. This one was a favorite when I did sampling this winter!
Bourbon is distilled from a fermented mash of grain, yeast and water. The “mash bill” must have a minimum of 51% corn. For most bourbons, the average is about 70%. Other grains such as rye, malted barley and wheat are considered the “flavor” grain. .Iowa’s farmers use a variety of conservation practices to ensure the best use of soil and water resources to reduce nutrients in water and ensure their long-term ability to farm corn. Practices like cover crops, no-till, nutrient management, drainage tiling and buffer strips are all ways corn and grain farmers work to improve their farms, leaving the ground better than they started for future generations.
