Rowan´s Creek Straight Kentucky Bourbon, 50,05%

Review #471
A small batch Bourbon from Kentucky Bourbon Distillers. It is bottled at a funny 50,05 % or 100,1 American proof. This is from batch QBC No 15-81. Charred oak, cinnamon and some Christmas cake fruits on the nose. It is very closed at first, so give it some minutes in the glass, and make sure it isn’t too cold.

The taste is full of dark fruit, oak and honey. The finish is medium to long, but nothing new happens here. The sweetness takes over a bit though, and some vanilla and caramel is coming forward. Some wood spices is present all the way through.

Not very complex, but it does the job with a nice long and warm finish. A very classic Bourbon in my book, and the high ABV really suits it, without being overpowering. I will give this 82/100 (20/21/21/20).
