Bourbon — Kentucky, USA

5.0
5.0 out of 5 stars
One of my local bar's that's better known for craft cocktails decided to do a breakeven bottle and boy did they pick a great one! At 22/oz it was an absolute no brainer to grab a pour! To my surprise when I got there I realized it was the 2018 release versus what I expected to be the 2019 release. It was bottle 280 out of 463 and retails for $700 (secondary is around $2,500). We know it has a low entry proof of 103 (hence the low cask strength proof of 114.2) it's sourced from KY and is age stated at 20 yrs old. Let's dive in... It's really mouthcoating and oily... Big vanilla, toffee, cherries and plums upfront... Complex and proper Bourbon notes... Mature oak and old leather creep into the mid palate with baking spices... Long finish is all oak and caramel with some wood spice... Right at the tail end it's a tad drying... At no point did I even feel the proof... It's so well balanced and executed. In summary, this is one of the very best I have ever had the pleasure of tasting. Cheers all!

    @jsk @PBMichiganWolverine this really was an incredible opportunity and really great if the White Rabbit to do it as a breakeven! Needless to say the bottle was killed within hours!

    If I had a "bourbon bucket list" this would definitely be on it. Seems like everybody who's tried it says it's one of if not the best bourbon they've ever tasted. Awesome that you got a pour for such a cheap price.
