Review #342 – Yellowstone 2015 LE

Whiskey Network Review #342 | /r/Bourbon Review #188 – Yellowstone Limited Edition (2015) , 105pf | 52.5% ABV

Bottler: Luxco

Mash: Blend of 3 bourbons

ABV: 52.5% ABV | 105pf

Age: 7 years (Blend of 12yr, 7yr, 7yr)

Year: 2015

Source: /r/scotchswap sample

Nose: Sweet corn, vanilla, cream, mild toffee, some faint leather and dust

Taste: Thin mouthfeel but no heat. Sweet peppery vanilla cream, caramel, leather, some nice spice, faint hint of bubblegum and artificial fruits

Finish: Short, oily though and nice and cocoa and spice forward

Overall: Short and simple, this is simple bourbon in a fancy bottle. It retails around $100, but I’d rather have a $25 bottle of Henry McKenna BiB. It doesn’t have any gaping flaws though, and I don’t take price into account so this gets a Rank 5. It’s no nonsense but also no frills.

Thanks for reading!

Rank: 5
