Review #838 – Winchester Straight Bourbon

Review #838 | /r/Bourbon Review #450 – Winchester Straight Bourbon

The Schtick: This is a Total Wine house brand that is sourced from TerraPURE in the Carolinas – a company that “hyper ages” distills products by attempting to age them faster than conventionally possible using a proprietary method. They claim that this process will revolutionize the industry by providing producers with products that are comparable to well aged bourbons and ryes, in just a fraction of that time. Let’s see how it is.

Winchester Straight Bourbon carries a 2 year age statement and is bottled at 45% ABV.

Distiller: TerraPURE

Bottler: TerraPURE for Total Wine

ABV: 45% ABV

Age: 2 Years

Source: Mini

Nose: Musty, caramel, pepper, clove, cardboard, still fake and sweet

Taste: Oats, musty, clove, caramel, some body

Finish: Short, very hot, musty and fake, caramel

Overall: This could be worse, but could be way better. Some oak saves it.
