Puncher's Chance - Review
Wolf Spirit Distillery - Eugene, Oregon
Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
NAS - 5-6 Year Barrels
Distilled in Kentucky
Mash Bill: 75% Corn, 13% Rye, 12% Malted Barley
Retail Price: $35
Poured Neat in a Glencairn
Color: Burnt Amber
Nose: Earthy, Vanilla, Caramel and Baking Spices - primarily Nutmeg
Palate: Vanilla Bean, Black and White Pepper, Molasses, Chewy Caramel
Finish: Medium Linger with an Earthy and Peppery flair on the back end.
Overall: This one is Funky! But in the best way possible. Based on the Mash Bill I can't help but to speculate it is sourced from Wild Turkey. It could also be Jim Beam based on the same investigation but I don't find it to have any of the nutty tones Beam is known for. Regardless of where this comes from, the flavor profile is in my wheelhouse. Certainly a familiar taste and one I enjoy sipping continuously. I always like to mention that I'm not after high proof bourbon, but rather high flavor bourbon. Even at 90 Proof, Puncher's Chance is packed with flavor.
