This is one of the NAS expressions produced by KBD. It’s a small batch bourbon bottled at 57.15% ABV.
Nose: Peppery with big grain notes, cinnamon, quite yeasty, brown sugar – fairly basic bourbon nose.
Palate: Green apples, brown sugar, cinnamon, peppery, young and slightly harsh oak.
Finish: Pepper comes to fore front as the heat dials up with bitter oak and corn notes.
Rating: 78/100 – It’s a bit rough around the edges, but overall a decent bourbon.
Value for the money: These range at retail from $42 on the low end at Total Wine, up to around $60 at other stores. I’d pass even at the low end personally – I think this belongs closer to the $25-30 level.
