Distiller: Traverse City Whiskey Company
Bottler: Traverse City Whiskey Company
Brand: Traverse City Whiskey Company
ABV: 58.3% ABV
Age: 4 Years
Nose: Some oak, a bit of pine, a pleasant caramel note. Faintly musty, but only just a hair. Fairly complex, some vanilla and a hint of pepper. Pretty nice overall.
Taste: Medium mouth feel. Ethanol is present but sticks to the back palate. Cocoa, some almond and honey. A bit of pepper and rising sourdough.
Finish: Long, rich, complex finish. Pepper, honey, a hint of melon. Oak is pleasantly well integrated, and pairs well with the sweet dessert notes.
Overall: Not bad – this is a barrel proof bourbon that’s going to continue to sneak under the radar for some time, I imagine. Lots of good flavor, I’m very much looking forward to seeing this release continue to climb higher in age, where I think it can really take on some big names.
