Review #792 – O.K.I Single Barrel 10yr Bourbon, Barrel #71 Gift Shop Release

Review #792 | /r/Bourbon Review #435 – O.K.I Single Barrel #71 10yr Gift Shop

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.

This is a 10yr bourbon bottled at 112.75pf and released at their gift shop. I am unaware of what specific finish this specific cask was treated to.

Nose:  Rich maple, honey, syrupy stewed fruits. Molasses and a good deal of vanilla butter cream.

Taste: Thick mout hfeel. Some heat, but not punishing. Peppery clove, vanilla and molasses are prominent flavors. There’s a faint fruitiness, but it doesn’t scream PX/Oloroso sherry.

Finish: Medium length, some heat. Lots of pepper with some really weird herbal flavors rising. Its minty and loaded with spicy pepper and clove.

Overall: This is very apparently high rye and was sort of a wild ride, but I dug it in the end. This is easily the best I’ve tasted from them, as their other products were fine at best.

Thanks for reading!
