Bull City Bourbon Club pick, "OFBs My Cherry Pie" Barrel No. 6790 Warehouse G; Floor 4 63.4% abv; 126.8 proof Open 2 months Nose - stewed berries, sweet oak, brown sugar, cinnamon bun, nutmeg, and medium ethanol. Palate - black pepper berry jam, burnt toast, toasted marshmallow, dry oak, dry baking spices, and peanut shells. Finish is medium-long with dry oak, black pepper, stale gingerbread, cocoa powder, clove, and strong ethanol. Another solid OFSBBS, a slight step up from the previous BCBC pick we released over a year ago. I've had 3 OFSBBS picks in the last 2 years, 2 were good and 1 was excellent. I still stand by my initial opinion on OFSBBS. They lie halfway between JDSBBS and ECBP in terms of flavor, but are more expensive, harder to find, and slightly lower average quality. If you find one at MSRP, by all means buy it because it could be fantastic. I definitely would never pay a markup, easier to grab a JDSBBS or the readily available OF 1920.
