HAPPY REPEAL DAY!!!
Bourbon: Corner Creek – 10 Years Old (Espiritus, LLC)
Type: Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Proof: 88.0 (44.0% ABV)
Distilled at: Undisclosed Kentucky distillery
Nose: Soft on the nose with notes of brown sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon. There’s some oak as well that has a very subtle, earthy note to it.
Palate: The weaker element of this pour—it drinks as a solid 88 proof bourbon, with notes of soft caramel and oak in equal measure but nothing deeper. If this was cut a little less, there would be a lot more flavor to unpack.
Finish: Much like the nose, the finish is soft and sweet with notes of caramel and charred oak. Shorter side of medium length finish with no bite or astringency. The nose and finish are the clear stars.
Geek Fact: Happy Repeal Day! On this day, 86 years ago, President Franklin D. Roosevelt made good on his campaign promise to repeal Prohibition. President Roosevelt, with the assistance of former Attorney General A. Mitchell Palmer, instituted a plan to have the states ratify the 21st Amendment in order to get Prohibition repealed, and remains the only Amendment to be done so by state ratifying conventions. On December 5, 1933, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Utah became the final states needed for ratification.
…And if you’re here for info on the bourbon, Corner Creek Distillery Co. was founded in 1998 in Miami, Florida and later sold to Espiritus, LLC in 2016. The label (the 10-year label) was applied for by Kentucky Artisan Distillery (the same people behind Whiskey Row, Jefferson’s bourbon, and Copperhead Distillery). No mash bill has ever been disclosed on it, but this non-chill filtered, 10-year offering was introduced in 2018. #Cheers
