Review #533 | /r/Bourbon Review # – David Nicholson 1843
The Schtick: This is a wheated bourbon released by Luxco. It is Heaven Hill distillate, similar to the Larceny and Old Fitz mashbill.
Distiller: Heaven Hill
ABV: 50% ABV
Nose: Ethanol, caramel, confectioners sugar. Pretty much all sweet.
Taste: Thin, werther’s caramel candies, faint honey and fruitiness. Mild oak / tobacco but not prominent in any way.
Finish: Short, faint oak and caramel.
Overall: Overall, this is short, sweet and thin. Not bad, but not impressive. I have a feeling this distillate is younger and from less quality casks than what goes into Old Fitz and Larceny since I remember liking those more.
Thanks for reading!
