Distilled at New Riff, this single barrel bourbon comes to us at barrel proof without filtering. Ages of single barrels will range widely, though New Riff typically keeps their barrels rolling out very closely to the 4 year mark.
Caramel on the nose, lots of praline, clove, brown sugar. A bit sweeter than expected, and that’s only a good thing.
Sweet on the palate - medium mouth feel. The proof is right on, not too hot, but lends plenty of viscosity. Toffee, brown butter, pepper and some nice sweet oak.
Short finish, a bit hotter than expected. Pepper, clove, some cinnamon. Spicy finish.
A pretty nice single barrel from New Riff. Nicely done. (Barrel 16-1969)
