  • Intro:

    This was a blind sample I did from a friend, and the bottle was revealed to me upon presenting my notes. Let's see how I did.

  • Nose:

    Sweet fruits, namely berry, musty, tobacco, black currant.

  • Taste:

    Sweet, good deal of fruit. Blackberry, toffee, some pepper. Super fruity. Runts - banana runts.

  • Finish:

    Malty, musty, some earth. Musty and dirty.

  • Overall:

    Bourbon, I think. Something younger, maybe craftier? Guessing 3-7 years, 46% ABV, bourbon with an interesting mash bill. Not bad, not amazing. This was revealed to me to be a Woodford Reserve Selection, but an interesting one. A blend of two barrels, released by Rays Wine and Spirits in Wisconsin. The banana note makes a lot more sense now, and I'm a little peeved I couldn't find it in me to place it, but what can ya do. Pretty much nailed the rest, so I feel alright given the age and the ABV.
