This is a delicious old bourbon that has typical bourbon notes of citrus, chocolate, leather and old dusty oak. It’s a viscous mouthfeel with a nice balance that veers towards a slightly over oaked flavor mid-palate showcasing its age that quickly fades away in the long finish with dusty oak and typical bourbon notes.
At a price tag of nearly $2k, it was worth a taste but I’d rather have a Garrison Brothers Cowboy or Lux Row 12 year Double Barrel.
Smell and taste reflect the age, but I wouldn’t say this is over-oaked. Medium sweetness with an oaky smooth finish. If you can get it at a reasonable price, do it. Unfortunately most of the time it’s over priced
The nose is full of oak and vanilla, warm rye spice, baking spices and sponge cake.
The palate is gentle for its age and is chewy as rich oak, vanilla and caramel reach the corners of the mouth. A wave a floral rye spice follows with underlying notes of baking spices.
The finish is medium long and leaves you chewing on the whiskey and oak and vanilla stay long in the mouth while rye and caramel fades.
