Located in Lexington, Kentucky, Bluegrass Distillers was established in 2012 and began releasing their products in 2015. Offering a monstrously robust pour, this particular cask strength single barrel is unapologetic in its delivery of flavors. It’s big, bold, and brash, shocking the palate with an explosion of hot spices that borders on overly acidic. Possibly a result of the wheated mashbill, this potency doesn’t stop the bourbon from being an enjoyable pour despite its clumsiness. Sweet flavors dance with the unusual, and are encapsulated in a whirlwind of spice. It’s a bit of a monster, but one that will not be soon forgotten.

The bottle in review was barreled on 1/24/2017.
