Review #84 | /r/Bourbon Review #46 – Corner Creek
The Schtick: Mmmm, craft whiskey.
Distiller: Corner Creek
Bottler: Corner Creek
ABV: 44% ABV
Nose: Very sweet, lots of vanilla and cream. Some mild cinnamon and pepper.
Taste: It has a thin mouth feel but a pretty impressive palate for craft whiskey. It’s mildly astringent but well balanced with lots of vanilla and cream sweetness. Starting to strike me as a dessert bourbon.
Finish: Short but nice and spicy. I like it more than I expected.
Overall: I don’t know a whole lot about Corner Creek and I decided not to look into it too much before I tried this. Overall, I was pretty impressed given that it’s a pretty low proof dram. I can totally see myself enjoying this while eating some pralines or a bowl of ice cream after dinner. Light, delicious and very gentle on the palate. Not a bad dram for the money.
