    Aroma - Vanilla and plums Taste - brown sugar and tart plum. Sherry pops out towards the back. Texture - weak, burn at the end. Very quick. Finish- smokey and dry. Tastes like a Cab. In bourbon form. Over priced for what you get.

    Absolutely delicious. Tons of fruit and vanilla on the nose. The flavor profile is barely "bourbon" but in a good way. Fruity with just a hint of cinnamon on the front. Sweet vanilla, apples and leathery finish on the back. Long, warm, pleasant finish. Reminds me of wild turkey masters keep Revival. Probably the sherry cask.

    Gift from Ninas mom (birthday). Really unique tastes with the Sherry cask finish. Super smooth but a flavor profile that bites up into the nose. Awesome experience. (Store owner let us try the normal bourbon non-sherry in store and was much spicier).

    So what makes a great finished Whiskey? In my opinion the biggest factor is that the Whiskey must drive the experience and the finishing simply enhances it. Too often with cask finished Whiskey the finishing overpowers the Whiskey itself. Here we have an MGP Bourbon blend between 9-11 yrs old that's finished in first fill Oloroso Sherry Casks sourced from Spain. Finishing time is at least 3 months. So how does it taste? Let's dive in... Upon entry it's rich, viscous and a touch oily.... Raisins, cherries and tobacco lead with some clove in the background.... Oak starts to present itself with vanilla and allspice... Cocoa and array of baking spices on the long finish with more oak and some dried red fruits. Just lovely. From first sip thru the finish you know you are drinking a well aged MGP Bourbon... The DNA is all there.... The Sherry finishing just add wonderful fruits and added depth... All in all this is an excellent example of a well executed finished Bourbon. Probably the best Sherry or Port finished Bourbon on the market for under $100. Cheers All!

    Final entrant in the cask finish BM. Cognac and Madeira were both 6-9yr blends. This guy is only 9-10 so age stated 9yr. I don't know if its the extra 3 years or the sherry finish but DAMN this is easily better than the others and I really liked the Madeira. This has a refinement and richness along the lines of high end scotch. The easy smoothness of the deep dense flavors set it apart. Poured neat, nose is succulent fruits, light maple and salted caramel with some nuts and oak. The rye is present but in check as well as ethanol . Palate is scrumptious with dark fruit, maple fudge, melted toffee, oak, butter and rye spice all tied together with a cohesiveness you have to taste to understand. This is bourbon for scotch lovers. Tastes more like it was sourced from Glendronach rather than MGP. Finish is long with the palate ringing true without going dry or bitter. Sweet toffee, some cigar leaf and buttery oak for miles. The overall experience is quite impressive. Really no discussion whether to purchase full bottle at price(70-80$). I will have this as BM is a unique profile on its own and well worth the base offering. This sherry finish 9yr takes it to another level and is elite imo......98/100... Easy recommend and purchase despite lower proof...That's another thing most of my top bourbons are high proof bruisers this one here doesn't need that to deliver the goods.
