  • Excerpt: While not too assertive, its 90-proof would benefit from a little more depth or sweetness to balance it out.

  • Excerpt: Sweet on the palate with just a faint ethanol presence. Bright and fruity again. Clove, rye spice, brown sugar, lemon curd and light oak give the palate plenty of complexity.

  • Intro:

    Resurrected from a historical brand of old, Chicken Cock Whiskey is back and under the guidance of Master Distiller and Blender Gregg Snyder. This particular expression is their bourbon whiskey, bottled without age statement, at 45% ABV, in a bottle that pays homage to the historical roots of the brand.

  • Nose:

    Bright, fruity, effervescent. Lime, lemon, butter cream. Some corn, caramel and sweet vanilla bean.

  • Taste:

    Sweet on the palate with just a faint ethanol presence. Bright and fruity again. Clove, rye spice, brown sugar, lemon curd and light oak give the palate plenty of complexity.

  • Finish:

    Short to medium finish, lots going on. The spicy, fruit and vanilla carry through the finish, making for a pleasant dram.

  • Overall:

    Surprisingly complex, this revival of the historic brand is delicious and a treat.

  • Score:

    6
