Texas-based Milam & Greene retains making waves, its newest bottling being the second restricted version bourbon in its Castle Hill Series. Like Batch 1, that is sourced inventory from Tennessee (unspoken, however Dickel). Once more the 26 barrels that go into the mix are all a minimum of 13 years outdated. (M&G breaks down their ages to the day: starting from 13 years, 10 months, 17 days to 14 years, 3 months, 6 days.) Notice: That is in all probability the ultimate Fort Hill launch, so get it when you can.

Let’s dig in to this extremely restricted launch and see the way it fares.

This can be a stunning whiskey from begin to end. The attractive nostril options outdated wooden and tons of spice, silky vanilla, some cocoa powder, and ample fruit — apple and a few cherry. Raisiny notes emerge over time. The physique is so delicate you’ll instantly overlook it is a 55.5% abv bottling. Lush with vanilla and baking spice on the palate, the whiskey quickly segues into extra of these fruit notes evident on the nostril, turning fairly minty because it heads towards the end. Once more, extra chocolate right here, giving it a slight Andes mint character, although a little bit of grippy tannin reminds you that you just’re coping with an older, cask power launch.

Prime shelf stuff, and doubtless already bought out.

111 proof.
