Blade & Bow 22 Review

This is a 22 year expression from Diageo that is a blend of new Bernheim and Buffalo Trace distillate and is bottled at 46% ABV.

Nose: Waves of brown sugar with lemon curd, caramel, sugary burnt oak, and some grape juice notes.

Palate: Caramel, burnt popcorn, bright lime zest with dry old oak, cinnamon, and charcoal.

Finish: Fades in a flash leaving traces of dry oak.

Rating: 83/100 – The nose is quite nice, but becomes a bit tame on palate with an almost non-existent finish.

Value for the money: These retailed for $150 and are definitely not worth it at that price. I’d be willing to pay around $60-$70 at the most for this bottle.
