291 Barrel Proof Straight Bourbon Whiskey (Batch #1)
Bourbon — Colorado, USA
Tasted December 21, 2020
Oh man, is this bourbon delicious. The nose is heavy, rich, and comes out sweet, yet hot and swinging. Like a WWE ringside girl when someone calls her a b*#%$. Cinnamon Red Hots, oak, cherry, brown sugar, and bakery pastry or pie crust are all notes that fight for attention in this barrel proof beauty. The palate is hot as well. It’s also dry and ashy with a notable taste of Christmas baking spices, namely, cinnamon and cardamom. The bourbon finishes with cinnamon, and a tangy and spiciness, similar to some Asian cuisine. This is a tough whiskey that wants to go down fighting. But once you earn its respect, it’s a friend through and through. I think this is one of the best bourbons I’ve had. I highly recommend! Thanks 291, cheers!
