Nose: Menthol, brown sugar, deep cherry, dark caramel, maple, oak, charcoal, and smoky bacon. Lovely and rich.
Palate: Sweet and thick. Brown sugar, syrup, maraschino cherries, old musty oak and wet tobacco followed by spice.
Finish: Tobacco, cherries, white pepper, burnt vanilla, with lovely lingering oak. It’s dry, but not overly so. Medium-length.
Thoughts: If you’re turned off by the brand, don’t be. JDSB is a well crafted and confident bourb.., I mean, Tennessee whiskey. Not as thick or stylized as some other bourbons, but it’s rich with quality core flavours. The wood notes are particularly enjoyable. Overall, it’s a standard flavour profile with some added richness and intensity that is good in a straight-forward kind of way. Nothing pioneering about this, really. Just well-done and delicious.
