2XO The Phoenix Blend
Bourbon — Kentucky, USA
Reviewed December 24, 2022
The rye definitely comes through with flying colors. The additional oak aging somewhat softens the spice, and adds a drier and more wood forward tonality. Butterscotch, light vanilla, caramel and dark rye toast flavors all play well together, melding into a solid whiskey. The finish is quite long, with a lot of wood coming out on the palate at the end. A definite sipping whiskey, it opens up into a softer version with some lighter baking spice notes when enjoyed with a large cube of ice. We look forward to trying Dixon’s upcoming releases.
