Crafted in Colorado, Broken Arrow Spirits takes that to heart. Barrel & Branch is created using prairie corn, Colorado spring water, and aged in barrels that were produced from the trees on their own property. The whiskey goes by the name “Flagship Bourbon” on their website, yet curiously there is no mention of it being a bourbon on the bottle or their 2017 TTB label approval. Overall it’s a straightforward tasting whiskey, leaning heavily on vanilla, caramel, and grain notes. On the flip side, its nose is expressive, and its maltiness adds character. Additional time in oak is needed to increase complexity and bring out additional flavors.
