  • Intro:

    This is a weird Heimerdinger of a release from our pals down at Willett. The XCF stands for eXperimental Cask Finish, and this 7 year old bourbon spent 90 days being finished in a cask that once held Curacao. Lets see how it is.

  • Nose:

    Allspice, clove and pepper. Faint citrus peel, perfumey, and musty. Some mustiness. Some cough syrupy notes.

  • Taste:

    Thin to medium mouthfeel. Sweet honey, lots of allspice. Cloying citrus peel notes. Reminds me almost a little of Hochstadters Rock n Rye - but not as thick or cloying. Theres a lot of clove here, earthiness and bitter cocoa.

  • Finish:

    Short, hot and packs a surprising amount of bitterness. Earthier than Id like, and loaded with artificial sweetener notes.

  • Overall:

    This was interesting and super fun to try, but its definitely not for me.

  • Score:

    4
