Review #496. JW Dant Split DSP 131

Review #496 | /r/Bourbon Review #281 – J.W. Dant Bottled in Bond, Split DSP

The Schtick: This is a pre-fire distillate, post-fire bottled bottled in bond product from Heaven Hill under the JWDant label.

Distiller: Heaven Hill

Bottler: Heaven Hill

ABV: 50% ABV

Source: Bottle, Purchased

Nose: Sweet honey, waffles. Some young grain notes. Faint vanilla, sory of muted overall.

Taste: MEdium mouthfeel, sweet molasses. Mildly astringent, some youthful notes here also but lots of caramel, cinnamon and clove.

Finish: This is pretty nice – long and sweet. There’s a little funk, but it’s a caramel bomb.

Overall: This isn’t a phenomenal bourbon, but it’s unique and has a really great finish. This bottle made a great, easy drinker but it’s time to let it out to pasture.

Thanks for reading!
