Review #343 – Willett Family Estate 4yr Bourbon
Whiskey Network Review #343 | /r/Bourbon Review #188 – Willett Family Estate 4yr Bourbon, 106.4pf | 58.2% ABV
ABV: 106.4pf | 58.2% ABV
Age: 4 Years
Source: /r/scotchswap sample
Nose: Sweet corn, caramel, toffee, vanilla
Taste: Rich mouthfeel, some mild youth (wet cardboard), sweet vanilla, cream, toffee. Still definitely young, but has really strong potential.
Finish: Long, complex but sweet. Heat is very well managed
Overall: I’m very impressed by this – it is definitely young and could use some more time – it has that “Green” wet cardboard note I get from a lot of young distillate. That being said, it’s sweet, buttery and complex for what it is and I”m very glad I was able to try it. The proof is on point and I really like the mouth feel. I’m not sold on WIllett’s distillate yet, but this is a very confident move in the right direction for them. I’m excited to see where it goes. I’ll give this a Rank 6.
Thanks for reading!
