Blaum Bros Distilling Co. was founded by two brothers who, according to their website, found that the only way they could get along was to drink whiskey with each other. They’ve been producing a portfolio of spirits since 2013, and their straight bourbon is at least four years old. It’s remarkably easy drinking with its summer fruit notes for a 100 proof bourbon. Unfortunately, the bourbon is dominated by youthful grain notes that muddle the brightness of the overall flavor profile and really bring down the overall experience of the sip. Additional time in the barrel is still needed here which will hopefully put a better emphasis on what this whiskey has to truly offer.
