I.W. Harper 15 Year Bourbon

Bourbon — Kentucky, USA

Tasted
2.75
2.75 out of 5 stars
Tasted this a little while back (not my bottle) so I don't have detailed notes. This one surprised me, not at all what I was expecting from a 15-year old KY bourbon. Sweet and herbal/floral both on the nose and palate, not nearly as much oak influence as I would expect for the age. Mouthfeel was thin, but it had a nice mint-chocolate finish. I think this would have benefited from a higher proof. It's just too thin at 86, and a higher ABV would have balanced the sweetness and hopefully added some complexity. Should make for an easy sipper for anybody new to whiskey, though.
