“Kudos to the blender and Sweetens Cove team! A unique flavor of mature wood and huge spice without the typical big vanilla that comes through in mature bourbons. Complex with a big finish.” - David Sweet, Bourbon and Barrel
In the July Issue of Luckbox Magazine, Sweetens Cove Tennessee Bourbon is named in the Top Four Winning Whiskeys. Read the full article in the printed publication.
Four Winning Whiskeys
4) Sweetens Cove Tennessee Bourbon Whiskey
4.5 out of 5 stars
(David) Sweet comes back to the tasting table for Sweetens Cove Tennessee Straight Bourbon Whiskey. We’re big fans of Manning’s gridiron exploits, but expected to feel indifferent to yet another celebrity collaboration.
Proof: 101.4 (cask strength)
Age: 13 years
Color: Dark caramel
Mashbill: 84% corn, 8% rye, 8% malted barley
Nose: Peanut, oak and banana
Taste: Berries, pecan and a full range of black pepper and spices at the outset
Finish: A big finish of dark cherry, dark chocolate and oak explodes, then lingers.
**Wood from the age penetrates through the spice. Water opens up an orange finish. Unusual. Awesome. Touchdown!
