Review #1654 – Bull Run Oregon Pinot Finish B&B Selection

The Schtick: This is a single barrel whiskey with an interesting setup – 11 years aged MGP that is then finished for 2.5 years in Oregon Pinot Noir casks. This selection was picked by B&B and was bottled at barrel proof.

Review #1654 | Bourbon Review #695

Distiller: MGP

Bottler: Bull Run

Brand: Bull Run

Selection: B&B

ABV: 62.67% ABV

Age: 13.5 Years

Nose: Rich toffee, caramel, some oak and strawberries. Pungent and rich, savory and sweet. This whiffs like a smore and a strawberry milkshake together, with some nice oak bundling them together.

Taste: Sweet caramel, toffee, nutter butter cookies. Strawberry cream, thick and rich dessert notes. This is thick on the palate, coats nicely, heat perfectly in check. Man, this is nice. Creme brûlée, faint cocoa. Tobacco. Divine.

Finish: Long, rich and complex. Peanut butter cookies first, followed by caramel, creme brûlée, satisfying oak and some cocoa. Fantastic and desert forward, this finish goes on forever.

Overall: This is excellent. There is no way around it. The base spirit and the finish interact really nicely, complementing each other wonderfully. That Peanut Butter cookie note is delightful, and blends well with the rest of what’s going on. I”m a fan. A huge fan. Excellent

Thanks for reading!
