Review #811 – Big House Bourbon 6yr

Review #811 | /r/Bourbon Review #441 – Big House Bourbon

The Schtick: This is a 6 year old bourbon that is bottled at 45% ABV. This is a sourced 60/35/5 mashbill from MGP and is bottled by Underdog Wine and Spirits from Livermore, California.

This entry also effectively kicks off what I am calling the ‘Craft Whisky Crackdown’ – a new series where I do things not even I want to do, in an effort to round out my sampling of spirits of all ages and qualities. Enjoy!


Distiller: MGP/LDi (Indiana)

Bottler: Underdog Wine and Spirits (CA)

ABV: 45% ABV

Age: 6 Years

Source: Sample


Nose: Caramel, honey, peanuts, faintly musty, faint fruits

Taste: Thin, mild heat, sweet caramel, musty, oaky

Finish: Short, hot, sweet caramel, pepper

Overall: Not bad, but weak in general. Not a lot of complexity, little hot. Token MGP profile. Could be much worse, though.

Thanks for reading!
