Like the bourbon, this Town Branch Bourbon review is going to be simple, to the point, and worth your time.
For starters, one key idea from the temperance movement is that: “alcohol is dangerous!” Well, Town Branch Bourbon comes with a simple paper label and wood cork in an elegant bottle heavy enough to be a blunt object. It’ll certainly spice up your palate, or your whiskey shelf at the very least. Created by a man named Dr. Thomas Pearse Lyons, Town Branch Bourbon brought bourbon distilling back to Lexington, Kentucky in 2012.
Our Town Branch Bourbon Review
Town Branch Bourbon comes in the color of polished copper and it’s a bit watery, for those of you who like a light pour. Don’t mistake that to mean the flavor, though. On the nose, you’re going to get something that’s a bit sweeter than your typical bourbon.
The citrus and caramel really come through here, along with a mix of fruit and that oak barrel. The palate comes out dryer than the nose will, and you’ll get those corn and spice flavors you expect with every bourbon. The palate is a bit harsh with its ashy oak flavor, but this is a $20 to $30 bottle at 40 percent ABV. The finish is short, dry, and warm with that pepper and spice finishing off the sip.
The mash bill is:
- 72 percent Corn
- 15 percent malted barley
- 13 percent Rye
