  • Intro:

    This straight bourbon whiskey from Bardstown Bourbon Company is finished in red wine barrels in a Collaboration Series release with the Prisoner Wine company. Bottled at 50% ABV.

  • Nose:

    Big, bold and jammy on the nose. Plenty of char, some pepper and big red wine notes. Currant, toffee, barrel char, some minerality and honey.

  • Taste:

    Medium mouthfeel, a hint of ethanol. Oak at first, with some Dickel minerality springing up. Pepper, jam, currant, cranberry and orange peel mesh with oak, char and minerality.

  • Finish:

    Long finish, a hair dry and oaky, but offsetting the jammy qualities quite a bit.

  • Overall:

    If you’re a fan of Dickel distillate, then you’ll find this wine influence to be a masterful addition that adds, rather than covers up, to the base spirit. If you’re not a fan of minerality in your bourbon, you’ll want to taste before you buy.
