We’ve got a new weekly (or maybe monthly) topic to throw at ya, Whiskey! Brought to you by potential new team member, TJ.

𝗔𝗽𝗽𝗲𝗮𝗿𝗮𝗻𝗰𝗲𝘀: Fancy bottle, with a gold topper. The bourbon itself is a light shade of brown. This is surprising since this is a barrel strength bourbon. Typically, barrel strength has no added water so the color is a deeper brown.
𝗦𝗺𝗲𝗹𝗹: Immediately after pouring I could smell vanilla, followed by caramel and oak.
𝗧𝗮𝘀𝘁𝗲: There is a lot of vanilla in this one. Followed by caramel, with a little bit of oak, apricot and honey. I could also get some hints of pepper at the end. It’s very creamy for a higher proof bourbon.
𝗢𝘃𝗲𝗿𝗮𝗹𝗹: This is a solid bourbon that’s not impossible to find. It’s a lower proof barrel strength at only 109.5 proof compared to a 1792 full proof (125) or a Stagg JR (132) but it still packs a punch.
I will give this Peerless release a 6.5 out of 10. Let us know if you have had it and your thoughts.
