Distilled in TN, KY and IN, this release contains 5, 6, 7, and 9 year old barrels. Bottled at cask strength, this 116.6 proof release drops with an MSRP of $85 and contains a blend of straight whiskeys. Let's dive on in.
Bright and sweet, corn forward, full of sweetness and caramel popcorn notes. Fresh, buttery biscuits, light vanilla bean. Lovely and sweet.
Medium mouthfeel, a touch of heat but the reward of rich viscosity and a buttery, silky texture. Pecans, sweet and corn forward, butter cream and some lemon bar notes.
Long finish, it works well here. Light on oak, sweet and light on tannin, honey and some butterscotch.
Overall, this drinks remarkably different than batch 32, featuring brighter, sweeter, more corn forward notes with just a touch of oak in the background. It drinks younger, sweeter and more corn and bread forward. Fans with a sweet tooth and no aversion to lighter, sweeter tannins will be wowed. If you were hoping for big oak and spice on this batch, perhaps wait for 34 to dawn.
