  • Intro:

    This bourbon from Spirits of French Lick is also the first single barrel selection done for the brand, picked by Seelbachs. Distilled from a 4-Grain mashbill, this should be interesting as I haven't had much from Indiana that wasn't MGP. Let's get to it.

  • Nose:

    Honey, pepper, some lemon zest and toffee. Surprisingly not youthful at all on the nose - quite rich, in fact.

  • Taste:

    Thin on the palate, and the youth makes its appearance here. Malt, cardboard some red berries. Grain, bubble gum, a hint of oak. It's not bad, there's some nice cocoa, faint oak, and some caramel. The youth is here, though, and while not offensive, it's not subtle. This is a young, young bourbon.

  • Finish:

    Short finish, but has some malt and caramel. Light oak, more of an oatmeal note, wet grain.

  • Overall:

    Not amazing, but not bad. This has a flaw here or there that hopefully age will combat. I think this is a strong start for them, but it falls a hair short of "good.". Will be looking forward to checking back in a year, though.

  • Score:

    4
