Traverse City Barrel Proof Bourbon 750ml

TASTING NOTES

EYE
Ruddy copper

NOSE
Oak, chalky cocoa, dried dark fruit, spiced orange peels, nuts, touch of leather, caramel and sugar cookies.

PALATE
Oak, nut, powdered cocoa, dried dark fruit, spiced orange peels, caramel and touches of leather and sugar cookies.

FINISH
Long -> Oak, dried dark fruit, caramel and sugar cookies.

BALANCE, BODY and FEEL
Good, full, oily

Aroma has this dark heaviness to it that starts oaky and shifts to darkly fruity to darkly sweet and then picks up some earthier tones; Palate sits like a complex cookie, like if you could put all the flavors of bourbon into a cookie… and drink it; Finish is a softer cookie copy of the palate.

Is Traverse City barrel proof MGP?

Barrel Proof is the most premium expression in the Traverse City Whiskey Co. Prior to this tasting, the only barrel proof expression I've seen from Traverse City was a single barrel offering from their MGP stock. While it wasn't their own distillate–it was plain to see they had selected quality stock from MGP's lineup.

Where is Traverse City Distillery?

Traverse City Distillery is located in Michigan and also has 2 tasting rooms at other locations nearby 

What is considered barrel proof?

While 80 proof (40% ABV) is the lowest legally allowed alcohol level for bourbon, and many releases are less than 100 proof, barrel-proof or cask-strength bourbon is typically in the range of 110 proof and higher
