  • Excerpt: This is really good bourbon, but one must question the cost because for just a few dollars more one can buy a Russell’s Reserve store pick that is 110 Proof, non-chill filtered, AND twice the size.

  • Excerpt: I’m a real big fan of this. Sure, it’s not M20, but I think it’s pretty darn good for what it is. I liked Ripy and others, but I think this is my favorite Barons release to date.

  • Intro:

    This is the third release in Campari's Whiskey Barons collection - a line of releases in 375 formats produced by Wild Turkey, but independently released by Campari. Let's dive in.

  • Nose:

    Sweet cream, orange peel, nice pepper character. Toffee, oak structure, some maple. Faint tobacco.

  • Taste:

    Medium to thick mouth feel, sweet toffee. Maple, oak, pepper. Tobacco, some orange peel.

  • Finish:

    Short to medium in length, some pepper. Sweet cream, toffee and a nice oak structure.

  • Overall:

    I’m a real big fan of this. Sure, it’s not M20, but I think it’s pretty darn good for what it is. I liked Ripy and others, but I think this is my favorite Barons release to date.
