Breaking & Entering American Whiskey
Other Whiskey — USA
Reviewed June 29, 2020
There is more richness on the nose here than in Templeton 4, with additional maltiness at the fore. It smells sweet, but still young. Yet it doesn't smell bad. There's a fair amount of complexity here with the maltiness coming through in a light fashion and the sweetness staying present throughout. The sweetness and malty richness do balance in a surprisingly good manner for such a young whiskey though. There are a ton for floral flavors and plenty of vanilla, but this remains drinkable in most circumstances. It's a lightly flavored whiskeys and certainly isn't one of my favorites but it generally tastes good. The flavors usually balance nicely and the palate is light but interesting. The flavor has a decent amount of complexity at the best of times, though at other times it just tastes light. Still. This is an interesting whiskey worth trying. Sure, it lacks the richness of Evan Williams Black, but it also lacks the tart dryness and has more complexity. It's hard to place this whiskey exactly, but I'd place it above Templeton 4 and Evan Williams Black. It lacks the richness and sternness of Jim Beam Black. How does it compare with Woodford Reserve? I'm not sure that it's actually worse than Jim Beam Black, but my palate is wasted.
