  • Intro:

    Distilled by MGP and bottled by Backbone, this special release celebrates the brands 10th year in business: a true decade down.

  • Nose:

    Nutty and rich on the nose, funky sweet and dessert all day. Leaning heavy on dessert and spice for this one.

  • Taste:

    Moderate mouthfeel, honey and toffee. Light berry, cream, praline. Transitioning to a touch of fruit on this one, though the honey and toffee still reign supreme here.

  • Finish:

    Long finish that’s sweet cream and strawberry preserve. Unique and well blended!

  • Overall:

    This is quite lovely - it starts bold and spice, funky and maple heavy but transitions to a much fruitier, creamier profile the farther you go along. A really fun look at some clearly creative blending.

  • Score:
