  • Intro:

    This is an interesting Bourbon, sourced from Kentucky and finished, then barreled, by Prohibition Spirits under the Hooker's House line. It is 4 years old, before it makes a hop and a skip over to California for a 9 month stay in Schug Pinot Noir barrels. It features a pretty robustly rye forward mashbill, clocking in at 54% corn and 46% rye.

  • Nose:

    Corn, wet grass, caramel, honey, cocoa, skittles candy, confectioners sugar. Jammy.

  • Taste:

    Thin, mild heat, floral, grassy. Young, but without a super musty, disgusting cardboard note. Jammy fruits, wine is evident. Like a young bourbon and a juicy oregon Pinot met in an alley. Caramel, some faint oak.

  • Finish:

    Short, some caramel, oak, tobacco, brown sugar, jammy cherry.

  • Overall:

    Not bad, but not great. Still a bit young and it shows, but there's enough wine influence and oak to fend off the crap craft young notes. If this was double the age, I bet they would be in great shape.

  • Score:

    4
