overall

Based in Americus, Georgia, this southern distillery makes a statement at first glace thanks to a bottle design reminiscent of an Old Forester’s Birthday Bourbon bottle or pot stills. But looks will only get you so far. Thankfully the bourbon starts strong with a deliciously nutty and fruity nose. On the palate the bourbon hits all of the classic bourbon notes with satisfying results. Its finish is on the nutty side which is present throughout its nose and palate, yet ramps up this note and becomes the finish’s predominant force. At four years old the bourbon never tastes young or grain forward, but is light and is a bit on the thin side. It's not detrimental to its overall effect, and the whiskey performs well overall. The base components of this whiskey are in place, but some extra aging time and a couple of extra proof points would greatly enhance this bourbon.

The sample used for this review was provided to us at no cost courtesy its respective company. We thank them for allowing us to review it with no strings attached.
