Review #342 – Yellowstone 2015 LE
Whiskey Network Review #342 | /r/Bourbon Review #188 – Yellowstone Limited Edition (2015) , 105pf | 52.5% ABV
Mash: Blend of 3 bourbons
ABV: 52.5% ABV | 105pf
Age: 7 years (Blend of 12yr, 7yr, 7yr)
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!
