Review #352 – Fighting Cock 6yr Bourbon

Whiskey Network Review #352 | /r/Bourbon Review #196 – Fighting Cock 6yr Bourbon, 103pf | 51.5% ABV


Distiller: Heaven Hill

Bottler: Heaven Hill

ABV: 51.5% ABV | 103pf

Age: 6 Years

Source: /r/scotchswap sample.


Nose: Sweet corn, ethanol, healthy dose of vanilla.

Taste: Sweet caramel, corn and mild clove. There’s some young grainy notes, mildly astringent. Heavy vanilla, cinnamon, oddly floral fruity undertones here. The proof is really great here – I am pleased they decided not to underproof this.

Finish: Really shocking but medium to almost long here. Pleasant sweet corn and vanilla.

Overall: I expected the top of the flops, absolute dreck. I was very surprised. I’m not sure what this retails
for, but, under $20, I’d probably bite. I’m well aware that they took away the age statement, which is sad, but this is some oddly solid juice. I’m giving this a Rank 5. Wish I had a bottle of this for the upcoming summer.

Thanks for reading!

Rank: 5
