Launched late December 2015, YellowStone Select is the second bourbon whiskey released from the Limestone Branch Distillery and Luxco partnership. Unlike the first release, which was a limited bottling at 105 proof, this is a younger, lighter bourbon that will be available nationally.
-A blend of 4-year and 7-year KY Straight Bourbon
Nose: Bright with orange peal, honey, dried fruits, walnuts, and leather.
Taste: Sharp with loads of rye, black pepper, and a plethora of baking spices. There is a shallow sweetness that follows, with dark chocolate dipped cherries. Also on the palate, subtle notes of raisins, nuts, and toasted oak.
Finish: Medium in length and mellow; subtle spice with a sugar sweetness.
Conclusion: This drinks like a 5 year old bourbon, but there is still a bit of depth and oak to tie everything together. It's not as robust as the YellowStone limited release, and at the price, I recommed trying it before you buy.
My Rating: C (Decent)
