Rock Hill Farm Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Rock Hill Farm Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Bourbon, 50% Alc/vol, 75cl
We are about to open the third bottle in this months Bourbon tasting event. We are pleased that we able to obtain some drams that a little bit different from the ones you can buy at your local supermarket.
This un-chill filtered Whiskey is the product of the Buffalo Trace Distillery, see our earlier tasting of Buffalo Trace for details.
Jim and Nicola are getting into this months specials, Bourbons, and tonight’s is looking like another winner.
Taste…Caramel toffee and a bitter sweet dark chocolate, with an almost sherry likeness.
Finish…Medium finish but with a drying nuttiness, a nice warming end.
Nose…A little bitter nuttiness, not so sweet and sugary.
Taste…More nuts and minty peppermint in this Bourbon, but no sweetness.
Finish…Medium and dry.
Overall score…2.5 Corks
Another interesting dram from over the pond, we are now getting a flavor for these Bourbons and we are so looking forward to the next Bourbon.
Although we have enjoyed all of our tastings so far none have really blown us away, but would certainly buy one of these as against the supermarket regulars.
To buy a bottle go online or visit your specialist Whisky shop, and remember tell them the Whisky Boys recommended it.
We have again to give a BIG THANKS to Master of Malt for our Bourbon Month sponsorship.
