.roughstock – bourbon


“Montana Straight Bourbon Whiskey is a vatted mix of four different in-house Bourbon recipes with varying corn, wheat, rye and malt contents. When these individual mature whiskeys are married together our Montana Bourbon becomes a rich and complex whiskey with multiple layers of exceptional flavor. This traditional American Whiskey is mashed with pure mountain stream water, carefully distilled twice in our copper pot stills, and then aged to perfection in heavily charred virgin American white oak barrels. Handcrafted in small batches in the mountains of Montana, our Bourbon is as grand and pure as the surroundings it was crafted in.”

Well, let’s see about that, shall we?

Nose: sweet, vanilla, butterscotch, spicy, black pepper, hints of clove, anise and tobacco, coconut
Palate: sweet, vanilla, honey, spicy, clove, tobacco leaves, milk chocolate, woody, fresh oak
Finish: medium long, sweet, honey, hints of vanilla, chocolate, tobacco leaves.

Conclusion: Hmm, very pleasant. A tad on the sweet side, but this sure makes me interested in what more the distillery has in store.
