Review #856 – Boondocks Cask Strength American Whiskey

Review #856 | /r/Bourbon Review #456 – Boondocks Cask Strength American Whiskey

The Schtick: This is a sourced whiskey that is aged in ex-bourbon barrels, hence the American Whiskey designation, rather than a bourbon designation.

This is Day #16 in the Craft Whiskey Crackdown. Here is the terrain covered thus far:

Distiller: Undisclosed Distiller

Bottler: Royal Wine Corp | Boondocks Spirit Co

ABV: 63.5% ABV

Age: 11 Years

Nose: Caramel, passion fruit. Honey, vanilla, waffle cone. Spirit-y, but not punishing. Some banana. Some oak.

Taste: Medium mouth feel. Shockingly light, not a ton of heat. Vanilla, cream, faint oak, pepper. Burnt plastic, astringency. Some fruits.

Finish: Medium length, but very hot. Bananas foster, vitamins, oak, pepper, cream.

Overall: I think the nose was the best part. I enjoyed the other parts but they were pretty astringent and thin, all things considered. That said, I’ve had far worse on this journey.

Thanks for reading!
