  • Intro:

    Distilled by Ironroot Republic in Texas and bottled by the American independent whisky bottler Lost Lantern, this barrel-proof bourbon looks like a treat. At 60%+ ABV, it should be a bold one. Let's dig in!

  • Nose:

    Bold char and cherry on the nose, oaky and dry, a good deal of cocoa, pepper and a touch of anise.

  • Taste:

    Rich and oaky on the palate. It’s dry, full of cola, char and toffee. Sweet buttercream, a touch of graham cracker, spicy pepper and ginger. More dry tannin.

  • Finish:

    Long finish, rich and powerful. This is dry, tannic and woody, but it has a genuine oak structure, not an aggressive, overoaked, micro-barrel tannin structure.

  • Overall:

    This is an extraordinary example of Texas whiskey, perhaps among the best I’ve ever had. In a league where Still Austin exists, this title is an honor for Ironroot and a feather in the cap of Lost Lantern, who dug this cask out and found a winner.
