This whiskey was pitched to me as a collaboration with “a extremely acclaimed band,” in daring, to which I stated certain, ship me some. Effectively, I’ve by no means heard of Whiskey Myers, however I can respect this whiskey — a sourced two yr outdated Kentucky Bourbon made with a high-rye mash invoice (70% corn, 21% rye, 9% barley) and bottled by the Dripping Springs, Texas-based Treaty Oak Distilling. Word that there’s no relation to the Treaty Oak Distilling Red Handed Rye 10 Years Old that we reviewed three years in the past.
For a mere 2 yr outdated whiskey, this launch has a shocking quantity of maturity. A nutty nostril evokes almond, caramel, milk chocolate, and sesame, touched with a light-weight hand of barrel char and clove-heavy baking spice. The corny pungency and overload of oak typical in younger whiskeys don’t actually materialize right here, nor on the palate, which is surprisingly rounded and creamy, heavy on the vanilla with notes of milk chocolate, cinnamon, a lighter clove character, and notes of flambeed banana. Gently candy on the end, the whiskey retains giving, by no means detouring again to oak, hinting at coconut, a reprise of chocolate, and the lightest contact of rhubarb. A bit on the easy facet, however surprisingly soulful and fascinating.
