Well, I have neglected the website duties for a while. So while dusting it off, I noticed we don’t have Old 55 review option. So here it is. While testing the feature, I figured a drink is on order and real review will have to follow. So here it is
Nose: Pleasant, couldn’t really pick up any distinct notes. Old sniffer is not what it used to be.
Palate: A touch of sharpness at first, but not too bad.
Finish: Some hotness on the finish. Pleasant.
Overall: It’s nice and pleasant. I couldn’t pick up any distinct notes, or tastes, but definitely a smooth sipper.
This Knob Creek Barrel was picked in December of 2020 and distributed in August 2021. Share your review below.
Overall, it’s not terrible.
Nose: Beam peanut funk wrapped in oak, corn grain but not sweet. Rye spice, and a hint of ethanol later in the palate. Average.
Palate: Sweet and spicy rye and corn grains on the front of the palate. Transition to mild peanut punk, though less pronounced than many Beam products. Late herbal notes, not too intense. Slightly above average.
Mouthfeel: Full, slightly above average.
Finish: Long warm hug, with a hint of the rye spice coming and going.
Overall: Slightly Above Average (I give it a 6.5/10 with a 5/10 being an actual average Bourbon). Proof might actually get in the way of some of the nicer notes on both the nose and palate (which is not usually an issue for me)
