  • Intro:

    It was only a matter of time until another NBA player entered the bourbon game, and here we are! Stephen Curry has entered the arena with a 45% ABV bourbon distilled in Boone County, Kentucky, with a mashbill of 75% corn, 21% rye, 4% barley recipe. Is it as good as the player himself? Let's find out.

  • Nose:

    Nasty and grainy on the nose — young and full of cardboard, green wood, musty paper and young grain.

  • Taste:

    Young, peppy and punchy. For 45% ABV, it's super hot, packed with ethanol, young grain, wet cardboard, must and grain. Gross and young, well underaged.

  • Finish:

    Short, abrasive, musty, young and hot. This is about as young and underaged a whiskey as I've had in recent years, and it's abrasive from the moment it arrives to the moment it (finally) departs.

  • Overall:

    Come on, Steph. This is underaged, and it shows. I can appreciate the proof being above 40%, but the young, youthful, grain-forward character is a clear marker for a whiskey bottled well before its time and produced with flaws throughout. Gross.
