Jim Beam’s Old Overholt lineup noticed a serious refresh again in 2020, together with the introduction of two restricted editions accessible, on the time, solely in Ohio and Pennsylvania: an 11-year-old providing (that also eludes us) and this bottle, Previous Overholt 114 Proof. The discharge was in celebration of the 210th anniversary of Abraham Overholt’s first rye distillation in western Pennsylvania manner, manner again in 1810. Based on Jim Beam, the upper proof is “traditionally rooted in a conventional maturation barrel energy of the time.” In 2021, this excessive octane Previous Overholt noticed nationwide launch, so rye drinkers throughout the nation can now add this one to their dwelling bars. Just like the Bottled-in-Bond, it has been aged 4 years and bottled with out chill filtration. Let see what the additional oomph does for this basic.

The nostril isn’t far faraway from the most recent bottled-in-bond expression, exhibiting a burly depth with sharp notes of furnishings polish, uncooked leather-based, and break up wooden. There’s an ample layer of grassiness, too, nearly golden straw, that gives a dry and earthy edge. A refined vanilla bean sweetness develops with time within the glass and softens a few of these edges with a little bit of marshmallow fluff. The palate is surprisingly approachable for the proof with a beneficiant sweetness that evokes notes of Samoa cookies and vanilla fudge. A savory brown butter high quality, current throughout all the Previous Overholt line, provides a complementing richness. The upper abv doesn’t actually present itself till nicely into the mid-palate the place a wholesome dose of darkish black pepper, shiny mint, and sharp, char-driven barrel notes muscle in. Nonetheless, it doesn’t make for fairly as gripping a end because the bottled-in-bond, settling right into a simmering, almost balanced conclusion of dried clove, buttery Snickerdoodle cookie, and a little bit of candied apple. Undoubtedly the winner of the overproof Previous Overholts, and a strong choice to your subsequent cocktail.
