Review #786 | /r/Bourbon Review #432 – O.K.I Small Batch 10yr Batch #15
The Schtick: This is a cheeky NDP who uses their brand to indicate the states involved in producing and bottling their sourced spirits – the O, K and I are stand-ins for Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. According to them, it is distilled in Indiana, bottled in Kentucky, and loved in Ohio.
Placeholder image because their site is fairly bad.
Distiller: MGP/LDI (Indiana)
Bottler: New Riff Distillery
ABV: 48.9% ABV
Age: 10 Years
Nose: Very prominent corn. Vanilla, caramel, clove and cinnamon. Lots of tobacco. On the drier, spicier side of things.
Taste: Thin to medium mouth feel. A good bit of heat, hot for the proof. Fruity, faint passion fruit. Pepper, vanilla, clove, oak, tobacco, earthy. Bitter.
Finish: Short, but prickly hot. Peppery, dry. Lots of clove and tobacco.
Overall: For a 10 year old, this is drier, oakier, and much hotter than it should be.
