overall

This unique tasting Kentucky crafted bourbon embodies everything I like about craft distilling, with an interesting background and unique flavor profile. It’s born from a yeast revived from #5 fermenter at the abandoned Old Crow Distillery site, now home of Glenns Creek Distilling. The bourbon itself tastes more like it originates from Texas than Kentucky, with a thick, oily mouthfeel and rich, bold flavor profile. For anyone seeking something both authentic and different, this fits the bill.
