r/Bourbon New Riff Single Barrel Barrel Proof #11586 "Crowd Goes Wild"
This product is currently sold out.
- Tasting Notes: The quintessential riff, this barrel had it all. Bold brown sugar, sweet oak. a touch of clove and loads of pleasant spice. The nose presents a spread of fresh biscuits, honey and a touch of butterscotch while the palate has a satisfying viscosity and tons of caramel and spice. While 2021's releases leaned very heavy into funky tobacco and pound cake notes, this strays back into a more classic bourbon profile with oak present but not overbearing. The ethanol stays tame despite the rich palate and lends to a long, vanilla bean, toffee finish. I'm not surprised it took the heavy majority by storm.
