Walker's Cay - Review



Stats

Walker's Cay - Kentucky Straight Bourbon

Finished with Sherry Cask Staves

Small Batch

NAS (No Age Statement)

King Spirits - Owensboro, KY

90 Proof

Mash Bill: 70% Kentucky Corn, 21% Winter Rye, 9% Malted Barley

Retail Price: $37


Poured Neat in a Glencairn


Color: Gold



Nose: Corn and Malt upfront. Pushes way to Vanilla and Fresh Cut Fig


Palate: Multi-Grain Toast, Vanilla Bean and Whoppers


Finish: Warm, Medium Linger with a delicate Rye Spice


Overall: Quite enjoyable. I can smell and taste a bit of youth on the front, but the overall experience catches up very nicely. Once the vanilla and cocoa started shining through on the palate, my tastebuds were very intrigued. The cocoa and malt makes me think Whoppers candy right away and that sticks around on the backend. The finish really surprised me being this is a 90 proof. The linger is warm and delicious with just the right amount of rye spice to influence another pour.


This sample was provided by King Spirits for the purpose of an honest and unbiased review. As always, that's what I share. Cheers and Thank You!
