Review #1234 – Blaum Bros Oldfangled Knotter 12yr Bourbon

Review #1234 | Bourbon Review #582 – Blaum Bros Oldfangled Knotter 12yr Bourbon

The Schtick: This is another bottling of MGP spirit under a private label. I tasted this dram blind and then got the reveal at a later time, so keep that in mind as you read through these notes.

Distiller: MGP/LDi

Bottler: Blaum Bros

Selection: N/A


Age: 12 Years

Nose: Musty and dusty. plums, clove, vanilla. Oddly fruity, with some nice mustier notes to keep things interesting.

Taste: Thin to medium mouth feel, fruity and sweet. Good deal of berries, honey, toffee. It’s a bit hot, but not punishing.

Finish: Long, fruity and rich. Lots of peanut funk here which is really interesting.

Overall: Hot but delightful in a way that I typically only enjoy from KC SiB’s. My guess was a KC SiB of 8-10 years in age, but this turned out to be a MGP sourced product I’d not yet had: Blaum Bros Oldfangled Knotter 12yr. Interesting!

Thanks for reading!
