  • Publication: Whiskey Raiders
  • Excerpt: Honestly, overall this is quite pleasant. It lacks body and a big, boisterous mouthfeel, but It's easy to enjoy, it's got enough complexity to be interesting, and the finish overcomes the lack of pizzaz on the palate.

  • Publication: Paste Magazine
  • Excerpt: All in all, this is a nicely composed dram—one that features some flavors likely derived from the Amarone casks, but none so overt that they overshadow the base bourbon.

  • Excerpt: Give this bourbon a few minutes and maybe a splash of water, though, and it changes. In the second wave, I found plum, pipe smoke, and soft, supple leather. It mellowed out nicely, in other words. Finally – and interestingly – I discovered a medium-long finish of Ben & Jerry’s Cherry Garcia ice cream.

  • Intro:

    Sourced for Yellowstone and finished in Amarone wine casks, this is 2021's Limited Edition from the Lux Row owned brand. It retails at $99.

  • Nose:

    Sweet caramel, honeycomb, toffee and a good deal of vanilla and berry sweetness.

  • Taste:

    Medium moutfheel, faintly astringent, some red berry and apple pie. Big toffee notes, an enjoyable amount of tannin and oak here. Cinnamon, apple strudel, cocoa and a touch of wine character. Huge maraschino cherry note. Undecided on if it helps or hurts.

  • Finish:

    Long finish, sweet cream, honey, toffee, waffle batter and a touch of pepper and oak.

  • Overall:

    Honestly, overall this is quite pleasant. It lacks body and a big, boisterous mouthfeel, but It's easy to enjoy, it's got enough complexity to be interesting, and the finish overcomes the lack of pizzaz on the palate.
