Spirits of French Lick: Lee W. Sinclair
Bourbon — Indiana, USA
Tasted April 4, 2021
So let's think about this, we have a bottle that is $43 store pick at 110 proof that is also craft whiskey and is one of the most unique bottles of whiskey that I've ever tried flavor wise. This is a no brained for me. I've had their stand small. Batch non store pick and at first the barley content was weird. But after a while I started to uncover sommany unique flavors and tasting notes that I knew I needed another bottle. This time I located a barrell selection from my local total wine and it is phenomenal! It is not your typical bourbon profile which I love, it has this malty brb yard funk and beautiful grain characteristic that grows and grows on my pallate into some amazing flavors. On the nose: Floral elderflower and eucalyptus Honey Orange peel Fresh Apricot Pear Fresh sugar cane Light brown sugar and maraschino cherries Very light banana and coconut Vanilla Hot chocolate packet with the marshmallows Amaretto This stuff is one of my favorites when I want something unique. This is not my everyday pour and it takes some time to get used to the flavors but holy cow is it good. I also bought the mattie gladden and it's good but the flavors hide a little more behind the rye where as in this one they are bright and in your face and willing to accept that they're different! Good pick!
