Rock Hill Farms Bourbon

Hi everyone, thanks for checking back in for another entry of the Blundon Bourbon Review. It's Derby week, and with the race right around the corner, we have a very fitting review: Rock Hill Farms! This single barrel bourbon is a product of the Sazerac Company (Buffalo Trace), and is bottled at 100 proof with no age statement. 

Color: Golden Amber

Nose: A unique yet balanced mix of sweet and spicy.  Vanilla, syrup, creamed corn, spicy oak, pepper, pine, hay, brown sugar, dried fruits, grains. 

Taste: Medium-full bodied mouthfeel. Oak spice, subtle rye, black pepper, caramel, oats, barley, and subtle mint. 

Finish:  Long and tasty. Spicy oak is dominant.  Leather and hay also linger for lasting warmth. 

Conclusion: I really enjoyed this bourbon. It has a rich flavor profile that is fairly unique, yet well balanced. At a $50 price tag, this bottle is a great one time purchase, however, not something I would keep stocked at the home bar. 

My Rating: B+ (Very Good)
