BRANDBoondocks Spirit Co.
Aged for 11 years in American white oak barrel in Kentucky, Boondocks American Whiskey 95 Proof is made from corn, rye and malt. Light in color but rich, nuanced and complex, fruitiness and exotic spices enhance some of the subtler aromatic characteristics like the toasted marshmallow oak barrel notes. Mouthfeel is creamy and buttery with a long, pleasant finish.
Pear drop sweets, it smells like nose diving into a large bowl of white sugar. Very little if any oak notes are released from the glass. If this bourbon was being blind tasted you could easily mistake if for a very young whiskey. Mav found the nose to be fresh and similar to many rye forward bourbons.
Dark red fruits and plum like notes from the onset alongside a slight rye kick. Not as sweet as you expect and the port finish could even be masking the sweetness rather than enhancing it.
