Union Path Bourbon is a brand new sourced blended bourbon launch unique to Mash&Grape, the net spirits purveyor produced in collaboration with The Bourbon Enthusiast, a bourbon neighborhood based by James Ashcraft that gives critiques and personal barrel applications to its subscribers. The one info accessible on the bourbon to this point is per the Mash&Grape web site, and it’s virtually fully ineffective:

Union Path Bourbon is a singular collaboration between Mash&Grape and the Bourbon Fanatic. Expertly crafted and hand chosen, Union Path brings collectively the very best that American Whiskey has to supply. We mix distinctive single barrels from totally different states to create a spirit that’s wealthy in taste, aroma and style, and embodies the true nature of the traditional American bourbon. We embarked upon the undertaking with a aim of making daring blends that defy expectations. And to carry the best whiskey to your glass.

That is more than likely a one-and-done providing as they’re already out of inventory, however we managed to get our fingers on a bottle and could be remiss to not share our expertise.

The nostril is among the most balanced in current reminiscence, with a well-tuned complexity of deep layered sweetness of s’mores (with the cinnamon, roasting marshmallows, and chocolate) and a powerful presence of oak. The nostril is delicate however not skinny and it instantly beckons a sip. The velvety palate begins out with a touch of smokiness that stops in need of coming throughout as peaty. It’s adopted by oak and leather-based notes that are surprisingly mild, with extra of a deep mellow sweetness of heat brown sugar which serves to mood and tone down the outstanding oak notes. The sweetness fades within the end and lingers faintly with a grip of leather-based and an occasional cinnamon pop. There may be loads of candy notes hanging on on the finish, nevertheless it rests pretty decrease within the combine in comparison with the notes of oak and dry cocoa powder.

Whereas I lean towards larger proof whiskeys, Union Path appears to take a seat excellent at 90 proof, providing up one thing very drinkable whereas nonetheless offering one thing to assume and discuss. That is finely tuned bourbon with simply sufficient nuance to please these on the lookout for one thing totally different from time to time with out coloring too far exterior the strains.

90 proof.
