Old Elk's Infinity Blend is bottled at 57.05% ABV. The makeup is fairly insane — truly an infinity blend: 18% Old Elk 2021 Infinity Blend of Straight Bourbon Whiskeys; 15% Old Elk Straight Bourbon Whiskey aged 7 years; 9% Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey aged 13 years; 6% Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, aged 12 years; and 52% Old Elk Wheat Whiskey aged 7 years. Wowzers. Let's dive in!
Big, bold and rich on the nose: spices galore, cinnamon, nutmeg and cocoa blend with creamy sweetness, caramel and toffee.
Moderate to rich mouthfeel. Plenty of apple, brown butter, salted caramel, big oak notes and plenty of spice here as well. It drinks a touch on the younger side but is full of complexity.
Long finish, full of brown sugar, toffee, cream and sweet oak. Layers and layers of spice make this finish a winner, it stays interesting sip after sip.
I'm typically wary of infinity blends that seem to try and throw too many profiles in a sip that end up coming across as noise. This release, however, works. Hats off to Greg!
