Distilled at Driftless Glen in Baraboo, WI, this bourbon release is a limited edition bottling that is then finished in port barrels. This carries a 4yr age statement and is bottled at 55% ABV.
Rich cocoa, honey, a bit of toffee and bright berries - like blackberry, currant and some honey.
Sweet and creamy, lots of berry character, fig and cherry. Cocoa, tobacco, some clove. Caramel a bit of honey. Wild and fun, this is sweet, jammy and fun without being too sweet or cloying.
Medium to long finish, it’s not brutally complex, but everything there is stuff I like. The port is definitely present, so if you don’t love a sweet, jammy bourbon, this won’t be for you. But, fans with sweet tooth’s will be a fan.
Overall, this is pretty nice. For 4 years it's drinking well beyond its age and the port has integrated nicely. Bottling this at 55% ABV was absolutely the right choice, and it shows in how delicious this ended up becoming.
