  • Intro:

    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.

  • Nose:

    Rich cocoa, honey, a bit of toffee and bright berries - like blackberry, currant and some honey.

  • Taste:

    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.

  • Finish:

    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:

    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.

  • Score:
