General description

Immediately sweet, Carmel/toffee. No oily mouthfeel. Mild Kentucky hug, medium finish. Much more refined then their lower offerings. It doesn’t taste like liquorice - but has a similar sweetness.

Nose

Some alcohol burn, slight barnyard scent - but like a fresh barnyard, not manure. And light wood. Like wood you’d use to start a campfire. Fresh and light.

Palate

3 out of 5 for oily feel. Warm and burnt Carmel with a toffee sweetness. Crisp apple on the back burner.

Finish

Carmel’s and toffees. Light wood - cedar. Think a candy corn if it was aged...

What a nice bourbon ... Was in to pick up a bottle of 4R Small Batch and found Single Barrel on the shelf. I secured a bottle and am glad I did. More complex than the Small Batch. May be a bit over priced at $41 USD, but I will add notes as the bottle expires.

Nose

Floral, but it works! Strong butterscotch, followed by brown sugar and light vanilla.

Palate

Toasted Oak up front followed by toffee, dark cherries and vanilla.

Finish

Almost a light medium finish; it is hard to believe this is a 100 proof bourbon.

Everyone is going to hate me. I was utterly disappointed by this bourbon. I expected a lot more. Perhaps it's because they haven't had 8 year old buck at half the price. It's still a pretty good bourbon. Everything initially reminded me of Buck Bourbon, except the fact that Buck is more well balanced and way smoother. Pun intended.
