Please enjoy our Bluegrass Distillers Blue Corn Bottled In Bond Bourbon review!
Bluegrass Distillers Blue Corn Bourbon has always been a much anticipated limited release. More recently, a Bottled-In-Bond version has joined in on the fun. I thought last year’s release was great, but this one might be better yet!
Mash Bill: 75% blue corn, 21% wheat, and 4% malted barley (Yes, this is a wheated blue corn bourbon!)
Tasting Notes – Bluegrass Distillers Bottled In Bond Blue Corn Bourbon Review
Let’s Taste it!
? Rested for 15 minutes in a Glencairn
The nose reminds me of a nice bowl of maple brown sugar oatmeal, like the one from Quaker Oats that I loved as a kid. Not that there is much maple, but it is more of the feeling. There may be a little corn muffin in the mix as well, and an overall graininess and doughiness which is pleasantly soothing. It is quite sweet, with light butterscotch tossed in for good measure.
Bluegrass Distillers Bottled In Bond Blue Corn Bourbon has a noticeable body and graininess, in a pleasant “warm bowl of cereal on a cold snowy day” kind of way, that comes forward even more in the taste. There’s also subtle fruit; perhaps blueberries. The same flavors, noticeable sweetness, and warming feeling continue into the finish. Then, later, some black pepper spice carries on with a bit of barrel char, too.
If you are a pot still bourbon fan and enjoy full rich flavors with some “graininess”, then this is bourbon you’ll want to try. I’m a big fan of all of those characteristics, and this Blue Corn BiB bourbon as well! Cheers!?
