I like the path this bourbon took me down as it nicely showcased its four grains throughout its sip, but its lack of time in the barrel is much too evident. It features a nice clean delivery of flavors, but additional aging will help develop these flavors more. I respect the effort the team at Split Rock is putting into this bourbon as it's a true organic grain-to-glass process using sustainable practices to create their product. There aren't many distilleries doing what they’re doing, and in some time I expect them to adequately fine-tune this unique product.
