  • Intro:

    Todays bourbon review features a short barrel selection by Jax Fine Wine and Spirits.

  • Nose:

    Clove, oak, pepper and tobacco. Vanilla and some faint ethanol. Really leaning in the earthy, spicy direction on this one.

  • Taste:

    Thick and rich, orange peel, citrus, pepper and vanilla. This isnt super complex, but it blends nicely.

  • Finish:

    Medium length but growing heat here. Some nice pepper, some rich oak and toffee.

  • Overall:

    I like this pick and found it a little different than the "usual" RR SIB bourbon profile, which was refreshing and fun. It really ground me into the dirty, earthy pepper direction. I really liked Jax other barrel best though of these four. Thanks again thpb, its always a pleasure to try even more distinct barrels.
