overall

This 6 year old non-chill filtered bourbon distilled, aged, and bottled by Watershed Distillery located in Columbus, Ohio was made to honor the company’s 10 year anniversary. Finished in Apple Brandy Barrels and released at barrel proof, its intensity and array of flavors is unexpected and potent. While it succeeds in offering a diversity of flavors, it’s a tad sharp in its delivery. Regardless, what it offers is interesting, with an explosion of unique flavors highlighting the sip.
