BLUE NOTE 17 YEARS OLD BARREL PROOF STRAIGHT BOURBON WHISKEY
Distilled by an Undisclosed TN distiller 17 years ago (wink) – we all know who that has to be – this bottling comes to us after bottling by the folks at Big River Distilling. If you’re familiar with Blue Note, Blue Note Juke Joint Whiskey, and Riverset Rye, this is another piece of handiwork for the brand.
There may be no better rollercoaster of expectation and realization than this 17yr Blue Note. Everything on paper screams that this should be a bitter, mineral forward, tannin bomb. What shows up, however, is a delightful fruit bowl of character, a rich chewy mouth feel, and the perfect amount of oak.
