Overall: A blend of barrels many of us enthusiasts are very familiar with. "Distilled in Indiana" - this always makes me smile as I can almost guarantee it's quality. Of course each barrel plays a key roll in the flavors of the aged distillate, but MGP has the mash down to a science. High Rye and High Flavor! Let's dive into this Series V just a bit here. I get quite a bit of complexity and a well balanced blend. The drinkability at 100 Proof is just what I was looking for. Is it "smooth"? You better believe it is. 13-16 year barrels seems to be a sweet spot. I can see the dark fruits showing their face a little more as I sip more into this bottle. All-in-all, this one has my attention and I'll seek out the next release for sure.
