Distilled possibly by Thirteenth Colony or some other distillery, this is Thirteenth Colony Double Oaked Bourbon, bottled at a blistering 67% barrel proof. The process of double oaking is finishing a bourbon in a second new, charred oak barrel. It's caught on lately and typically has some pretty great results, so let's dive on in!
Big and bold, full of toffee, Tootsie Pop chocolate, maple and oak, powerful caramel character and toffee. It's bold, it's brash and it's loaded with things I like!
Bold, chewy, viscosity. Tootsie roll candies, chocolate cherry cordial candies. Root beer, caramel, tons of baking spice and nutmeg. The mouthfeel is off the charts, really great on the palate. It's woody, but not overbearing. It drinks the proof, but easy to enjoy.
Long finish, pleasant and rich once again. It's not so oaky that the finish dries out your palate. This hangs on for ages. Caramels, candies, crème brûlée, cherry cordials and espresso.
Super rich, super viscous, balancing the tannin — this is some really great stuff. It's not easy to get, but it's a pretty unique pour and I'd love to see how this does in some blind tastings.
