  • Excerpt: This isn’t particularly good. In fact, it’s bad. Droptine 12 Point attempts to cover youth with a nice finish, but it doesn’t work. Cloaked by a ton of lack of information, this is a hard finished bourbon to recommend at any price.

  • Intro:

    Distilled at an undisclosed distillery in “America’s Heartland” and finished in brandy barrels in California, Droptine 12 Point is a really interesting bourbon experiment. Bottled at 46% ABV with no age statement, or word on filtering. There aren’t a lot of words at all, on this label.

  • Nose:

    Sweet, musty, fruit forward. Not very complex on the nose, not a ton going on at all.

  • Taste:

    Musty, thin, not particularly complex. Notes of cardboard, grain, hay, wet grass, musty and immature. The brandy helps by piling on a bit more sweetness. A bit of heat despite the proof.

  • Finish:

    Short, musty finish. This is clearly young, craft whiskey finished in so so brandy barrels. It’s quick to leave, a thankful character trait.

  • Overall:

    This isn’t particularly good. In fact, it’s bad. Droptine 12 Point attempts to cover youth with a nice finish, but it doesn’t work. Cloaked by a ton of lack of information, this is a hard finished bourbon to recommend at any price.
