Schoonover Straight Bourbon is a 14 year old sourced single barrel bourbon that is uncut and unfiltered. Sourced, higher aged Tennessee whiskey has become increasingly popular over the last few years, and it’s easy to assume where Schoonover Straight Bourbon is sourced from based on its overall flavor profile. That said, it’s not often that you see high aged, single barrel, barrel proof Tennessee bourbon hit the market. While the price is high, the resulting bourbon delivers a sip that is full of nuanced flavors throughout. With a proof that comes in just over 100, the bourbon itself can be easily appreciated by bourbon drinkers of all levels, however it comes at a steep asking price that will turn many people away. If you’re a fan of Tennessee bourbon, and are willing to pay its asking price, Schoonover Straight Bourbon Whiskey is sure to please.

The bottle being reviewed is from barrel #369.
