  • Excerpt: This is a wonderful look at balancing the big chocolate malt notes, tannin, sweetness, and the proof. Of the recent chocolate malt releases, this is easily my favorite.

  • Excerpt: It’s not that Raceking is necessarily a superior whiskey in comparison to other tried and true Kentucky bourbons, but the personality of this singular mash bill shines through, and that is the whole point here.

  • Intro:

    Distilled by Rabbit Hole using a chocolate malt inclusion to their mashbill, this Founder's Edition entry uses not one but two different chocolate malts: wheat and barley. Bottled at Cask Strength, this release is comprised of only 1365 bottles.

  • Nose:

    Toffee, orange peel, candied ginger, cocoa, big malt character and a touch of pepper and tannin.

  • Taste:

    Moderate to rich mouthfeel, really viscous for the proof, big toffee notes and some cocoa. Ginger, candied orange peel, a touch of blackberry and nougat. Espresso on the back palate, delightfully complex and fun to drink.

  • Finish:

    Long finish, espresso, toffee, nougat, coffee and tobacco finish.

  • Overall:

    This is a wonderful look at balancing the big chocolate malt notes, tannin, sweetness and the proof. Of the recent chocolate malt releases, this is easily my favorite.

  • Score:

    7
