Puncher's Chance - Review


Puncher's Chance

Wolf Spirit Distillery - Eugene, Oregon

Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey

NAS - 5-6 Year Barrels

90 Proof

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.
