Tennessee Bourbon 13 yo (2003/2016), A Rare Find, 53,7%

Review #636
From Gleann Mór Spirits comes this single cask Bourbon from an undisclosed Tennessee distillery. Only 143 bottles were made. Sweet caramel and vanilla in the smell. Rum essence and just a little wonderfull tocu of burned oak. I could smell this all day!

Heavy burned oak and alcohol at first in the taste. Some oranges and dark chocolate joins in as well. The finish is long and warm. The caramel and vanilla covers your mouth and lingers out beautifully!

It is not overly complex, but the balance is great. And if you like sweet whisky, with a touch of oak, this is you! If 53,7% is a bit too much, don´t be afraid of adding some water, as the whiskey will become more accessible to your palate. Probably one of the best Bourbons I’ve ever had! I will give this 90/100 (23/22/23/22).
