Review: Bib & Tucker Small Batch Bourbon 6 Years Old

Bib-and-Tucker-BottleshotA newer part of the 35 Maple Street collection, Bib & Tucker is sourced bourbon from Bardstown, Kentucky (sorry, Indiana!), in barrel for 6 years. No mashbill information is available.

The whiskey cuts a frontier style on the nose, hot and loaded with lumber notes, cut with vanilla and some rye-driven spice. The body follows suit, kicking off with intense wood, then wandering into notes of burnt citrus peel, leather, toffee, some green hay, and toasted baking spices. The finish is lasting, hot, slightly astringent, and not overwhelmingly satisfying as it pinballs from one flavor to another.

Those who like their whiskey with a lot of push and punch may find B&T quite a delight, but I expect most bourbon aficionados will be put off by the lack of nuance and the over-exuberant youthfulness that Bib & Tucker exemplifies. While it has its moments and some charm, I think 50 bucks can go further elsewhere.

92 proof.

    This one has just become available here in Germany – well, at least at one online shop.
    50$? My a**! It’s 90€ a bottle. That’s definitely out of my range.

    I just bought my first bottle last night from Wiser Choice here in Coon Rapids MN. I would have to agree with the author of this article. I think the price point is a bit high for this recipe but the flavor is not bad. My choice at the price point would have to be Four Roses Small Batch or even Buffalo Trace. Both good choices with good flavor, and at around $15.00 cheaper.
