Lone Whisker 12 Year Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Bourbon — Boone County, KY, USA
Tasted February 5, 2022
Let's start with WOW. The nose is incredible with rich caramel and butterscotch yet not even a hint of alcohol at 93.8 proof. As I nose this, I start to research this. It's 12 year old high rye (21%) MGP bourbon. The companies address is in the same industrial park as Boone County distillery who also has a relationship with MGP. So the pedigree is pretty much the same as Boone County 1833 and even the same age as one I had a couple of years ago. While 1833 was a higher proof, I expect this to be similar and it is. The nose is very complex with butterscotch and caramel, green apples and cinnamon. NICE. Great mouth feel and flavors matching the nose. Long lasting spicy finish. This is a great bourbon but would I give $150-250? 1833 was $70 and a tad better.
