2022 Ultimate Spirits Challenge

Rough Rider The Old Lion 8 Years Old Single Barrel Straight Bourbon Whiskey (United States), 63% abv, $150.00, 750 ml

Very Good,
Strong Recommendation

Tasting Note:

Deep and dark aromatics of torched cedar, roasted mushroom, and burnt sugar lead into a powerful spirit that, with water, expresses some buttery apple tart, roasted quince, and pear fruit. It finishes on cask notes of pencil lead, nutmeg, and flamed cinnamon.
