Day 25 of #30daysofbourbon for the #30daybourbonchallenge #bhm New Riff SiB 4 yo straight bourbon 53.5% ABV A new whiskey friend Matt Allen graciously shared a sample of the latest barrel pick from Miami Valley Water of Life. Everyone has been bragging about this pick. I was so thrilled to get to sample this one. I took one sniff of the nose and new I liked, no loved, this pick. Nose: caramel, spice, vanilla. Ethanol Palate: oak, spice, something else I can't put my finger on. I like it though. 🙃 Finish: Strong KY hug from the higher proof. The flavour lingers on your tongue. This is an great bourbon. I'm truly glad I saved a little for a second pour. I regret I didn't get a bottle. 4/5

    I'm increasingly hearing good things about New Riff. I wish these were normal times so I could go to a bar and check it out :(
