Continuing my little blind series is sample 2 that @Bourbon_Obsessed_Lexington was very generous to provide. So, time to open it up, pour it in my glass and ask the question, “What’s in the bottle?” The nose is simply a freight train of ethanol that overpowers the flavors, but is likely killing any COVID particles that could be in the air. After many drops of water, the ethanol has calmed down and the flavors began to open up starting with rich maple syrup candies, dehydrated apricot and buttermilk pancakes then dark chocolate covered pecans, toasted marshmallow and freshly lit sweet pipe tobacco followed by caramelized apples, cherry cough syrup and candied orange peel that transitions to light spearmint, baking spices and polished mahogany with high ethanol burn. The taste is a medium to full mouthfeel starting with maple syrup candies, dehydrated apricot and buttermilk pancakes before a moderate spice that slowly fades to dark chocolate covered toasted marshmallow, candied pecans and freshly lit sweet pipe tobacco followed by caramelized apples, cherry cough syrup and orange zest that transitions to light spearmint, baking spices and mildly bitter black tea with high ethanol burn. The finish is medium length with caramelized apples, cherry cough syrup, sweet pipe tobacco, mild black pepper spice, leather and polished mahogany. Another really tasty blind that I’d guess is a high proof bourbon which needed some water to unlock those traditional bourbon flavors that are dialed up to create a bold and rich experience that’s well-balanced, but suffers slightly for a moderate spice and bitterness. So, what is COVID sanitation solution that can transform into an extremely tasty bourbon with some water……. Weller Full Proof “Rainy Day”. Hot damn, Lex is surely getting on Santa’s nice list this year for sharing something as tough to get as this Weller Full Proof. My ABC store claims to stock these from time to time for $50 which would be an immediate buy if I ever get that lucky because the only time I’ve actually seen one in the wild the store was asking for $300 for the bottle. Thanks so much for sharing this one @Bourbon_Obsessed_Lexington and I look forward to finding out what the next surprise will be.
