Southern Star Paragon
Bourbon — USA
Reviewed October 8, 2021
This is a really nice bourbon. There are 3 Paragon bourbons and this is the middle priced on, Bottled in Bond (4yr). Nose neat has honey, oak and dill with that wheat sweetness. Palate offers oak, honey and chocolate. Adding a cube of ice brings out vanilla and Carmel in both the nose and palate but does make the whiskey taste thinner. Finish is long. The problem is this whiskey is just too expensive. It’s a local for me and I really like it, but it’s significantly overpriced. I’d really like to try the cask strength version, which is $10 more, but I’d have to think about it. There are a lot of excellent bourbons for less than $70. Still, this is a really solid bourbon.
59.0 USD per Bottle
This is now a standard release (not BIB) at 92 Proof. Price has also decreased to $45. I'm with you...local for me and I hope it's good.
