Part of the whiskey row series from Brown-Forman, this is a massed produced “limited release”. Supposedly modeled after what they would have produced during prohibition. Mash bill of 72% Corn, 18% rye, and 10% barley.
Paid: $60 for 750ml
Distilled/Owned by: Brown-Forman
Aged For: NAS
Mashbill: 72% corn, 18% rye, 10% malted barley
Cask Type: New charred oak, Char # 3
Chill Filtered: Yes?
Color: Auburn Brown
Drank: Neat, in a glencairn
Nose: Rich vanilla oak, sweet caramel custard. Very sweet and lots of brown sugar in the nose.
Taste: A bit of clove and pepper hit the tongue. Oak, rye spice, mint, vanilla, and just a slight after taste of banana. The spice is surprising after the sweetness of the nose. Good thick viscosity.
Finish: Warm and lingering with a good mouthfeel. Tobacco, toffee and more vanilla oak sweetness return.
Thoughts: Solid all around bourbon, doesn’t do anything amazing but not real flaws either.
Score: 82 out of 100
