This is an independently bottled release of 4.5 year MGP distillate. Bottled for Bourbon Street Wine and Spirits, this barrel proof bourbon is batch 1, with plenty more to come as part of their house brand line. Let's dive in.
Sweet toffee, fruity red berries. Musty tobacco. Pleasant, oaky, sweet. Nice body and age.
Woody, harsh. Very hot, especially considering the proof. Oak, toffee, some sawdust. Not really youthful in taste, past the searing heat. Some nice cherry. With some more age, I bet this would simmer into a real nice barrel.
Long, powerful and spicy. The youth is most apparent here. Spicy, hot, woody. Lordie.
This is 4 year MGP sourced for Bourbon Street Wine and Spirits. Its not bad, but its punishingly hot. With some more time, I bet this would develop really nicely, but for now, its just an exercise in self harm.
