Nulu Straight Bourbon Whiskey is produced by Prohibition Craft Spirits, in Louisville, Kentucky, and was based by Keith Hazelbaker in 2016 with the need to “get again to the fundamentals” with a really meticulous hands-on method in all the pieces they do. Their line up of spirits embody tequila, rum, vodka, gin and — the topic of our evaluation — bourbon. The present bourbon on provide is sourced from MGP whereas they watch for their very own distillate to age.

We acquired a maintain of the Home of Bourbon retailer decide of Nulu Single Barrel Straight Bourbon Whiskey for this evaluation. Noteworthy is how every bottle is hand-scribbled in sharpie with the proof (112.2), abv (52.1%), age (5 years, 9 months), barrel (#1392), and bottle (#48).

So let’s roll up our sleeves and get a deal with on what this bourbon has to supply.

Ethanol hits the nostril first. It takes some persistence for the raisins and cherries to rise from beneath — even rising as darkish chocolate coated raisins and dried cherries. After settling within the glass for a spell, the musky darkish chocolate and richness of dried fruits are extra distinguished.

The palate is a cinnamon bomb that fizzles in regards to the tongue (like Pop Rocks sweet), adopted by dry, leathery notes, earlier than ending with extra of these chewy raisin notes. The preliminary warmth settles down, however then emerges once more for the longer haul with a lingering heat behind throat, simply shy of an uncomfortable burn. Sweetness is all the time current all through, although it comes not from a sugary base however reasonably from the wealthy complexity of the dried, honeyed, or brandy-poached fruits. Cinnamon is certainly the spice hero right here; with a smidge of thyme and sage for the tiniest vegetal accent that ultimately offers option to woodsiness of a peanut shell. On the again finish, the end additionally presents a nice bitterness of citrus peel that coats the palate.

It is a bourbon with nice character. It’s gentle in physique however strong and sophisticated in taste. Maybe not for the newer or occasional bourbon drinker, however for these in search of one thing somewhat completely different, it’s effectively value exploring; particularly because the world awaits for PCS’s self-produced expressions to make their first look.

112.2 proof.
