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.
