overall

Chicken Cock Barrel Proof 15 Year is a big bold bourbon at an even bigger and bolder price tag. This limited run of 1,350 bottles with an impressive age statement resulted in a moderately complex bourbon that is full of grounded earthy flavors. It’s a nicely balanced whiskey and delivers a sip that few will find fault in, except for the price. Chicken Cock 15 Year utilizes the same 15 year old bourbon with mashbill from an undisclosed KY distillery that many other non-distiller producers have been utilizing as of late. The issue is that Chicken Cock 15 Year is the most expensive of the bunch, making other higher priced offerings such as Three Chord Whiskey Drummer, seem like a great value in comparison. While the bourbon delivers a robust well-rounded sip, its asking price is one to certainly give pause.
