Winchester is a brand owned by Terrepure Spirits (a.k.a. Terressentia Corp.), who specialize in private label and bulk brands, bottled in South Carolina. They pride themselves in using a purification/accelerated maturation process to remove harsh-tasting congeners from their whiskeys. This bourbon was aged a minimum of 6 months. Note: They also produce a Winchester Straight Bourbon, but this review is for their "Extra Smooth" Bourbon.

Tasting Notes

"The youthfulness of this whiskey is detected right away--the greenness, the sawdust, the bitterness, the harsh spice, the charcoal that hasn't had a chance to settle in. There is caramel and vanilla that is trying to stand out, but isn’t succeeding to rise to the forefront. "
