Garrison Brothers Cowboy Bourbon (2022 Release)
Bourbon — Texas, USA
Reviewed December 25, 2022 (edited February 14, 2023)
A truly impressive, high proof powerhouse. It needs time in the glass to open up, but as it does both the nose and pallet change in surprising ways while keeping the central flavor profile. Unique and worth the price of admission, it's hard to compare to another wheated premium bourbon due to the Texas white corn and aging conditions. Perhaps the most impressive aspect is the smooth, easy drinking quality the juice exhibits after some time to aerate. At nearly 140 proof, it's incredible how balanced the heat is with the rest of the flavors while it still coats the mouth as a high proof should. Many may question Garrison Brothers price point across thier offerings, but the 2022 Cowboy commands a high SRP for good reason.
