Yellow Rose Distilling (Texas) Tasting Notes

Posted: May 2, 2016 in American Whiskies, Whiskies

Yellow Rose Outlaw Bourbon 46%

100% Corn aged in small oak barrels.

Tasted: Mar 2016

Nose: Young, but not spirity and very peppery with woody rye-like notes, hints of wheat flakes and green citrus fruit. Slightly herbal with a touch of burnt caramel corn and sweet oak.

Palate: Opens with soft but herbal rye-like notes, followed by fat corn and hints of dark chocolate, burnt caramel and drying wood spices.

Finish: Long and spicy with lingering corn and light herbal marc-like notes.

Conclusion: If this is what I think it is then it’s developing quite well and shows a lot more complexity and balance than the last time I tasted it.
