3.25 out of 5 stars
The Distiller expert score has thus far had me steer clear of BH due to the price. I also recently tried their rye offering and it wasn't for me. I now have a bottle though, and a good friend swears by it, so let's give it a go.
Nose: Savoury for a bourbon. Leather, oak and a touch of rye spice.
Palate: Also spicy and savoury, with heavy wood notes. This is probably the least sweet bourbon I've tried so far, and it's a nice change of pace.
Finish: Medium length, dry and warming. The wood really comes out to play hear, and I get a lingering taste of cedar that reminds me of being in a sauna.
As a straight sipper it's good, but it lacking some depth. Could be the low ABV I suppose. It does make one hell of an old fashioned though.
Would I buy another bottle at $56? Probably not when there are so many other solid offerings at that price. I will enjoy making some cocktails with this bottle though.
