Rowan’s Creek: Review

FullSizeRender (9)

Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, 50.5%/Vol 101 Proof

Named after the creek that runs through the site of the distillery, Rowan’s Creek comes from Willett Distillery, like Johnny Drum which we previously reviewed. This is a sourced Whiskey, so we’re not sure where it originates.  The price point of $35 is also very appealing.

Appearance:

Medium legs meandering down the glass.  Golden honey in color, it beckons you to raise the glass.

Nose:

The nose is peach, oak, and mint with mild heat.  These are the kinds of scents that we find very appealing.

Taste:

The flavor is cloves and cinnamon with a hint of caramel.  It feels light and thin and not over-powering in any way.  It’s easy to drink at 101 proof.  The finish is oak and mint that lingers like a good conversation with a friend at the end of the night.  I’d compare it to drinking the end of a mint julep at a billowing campfire.  A splash of water brings out an added layer of sweetness and perfume, so give her a kiss of water and she’ll be good to ya.
