NULU Single Barrel: Barrel Proof Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USA
Tasted September 14, 2021
This brand was introduced to me by my local shopkeeper. Wax seals and western style labels look fancy on the shelf, but it's the elixir inside is what matters. I bought this and the toasted Rye which was not stellar. The sample my guy poured me was nice of this though so let's give it a proper review. Again this one is an A&B barrel. Nose is much nicer than it's wicked sister rye. Brown sugar sweetness is prominent with just a hint of ethanol. We are off to a much better start than the rye. First sip is full of caramel and pecans. A soft cinnamon burn builds mid sip that gives way to a caramel apple finish. For this proof point this bottle drinks much lower with the cinnamon burn never overpowering the flavors. Honestly this one surprised me with how prominent the caramel apple is and it is really quite nice. Overall this is a really good bottle. The biggest issue here is the pricing on these. At 5 years you are paying more for a fancy seal than the brown water inside. I would feel much better about this bottle at $60 than $80.
80.0 USD per Bottle
