I agree with the posts above that it doesn't taste like any other wheaters I have tried.  I couldn't figure it out either and kept coming back to it, but never really loved it.  It was drinkable, just not one of my favorites.

Yes, it doesn't taste like any other wheater to me too. In my humble opinion wine barrel aging and finishing is just not right for bourbon. In the case of the #3, which used Calif. Cab barrels, it takes the flavor profile in the wrong direction, imparting a somewhat tart, sour fruit quality a little like raspberry or sour cherry on my palate. While that might be fine for certain wines, it just doesn't work for bourbon, where sweet, candied, and Christmas-like flavors and fruits should dominate.

Blood Oath #3 had no wheated bourbon in it.

I tried some today. It's nice. Definitely more going on than Larceny. Lots of caramel and coriander. There's something else, too, that I couldn't place. I'll have to revisit soon.

I just found a bottle in Lake Placid, NY. I get baked goods flavors here, such as a pretty pronounced baker's or powdered confectionary sugar flavor on the palate, or maybe Krispy Kreme donuts. Overall, a light bourbon but very pleasant, with some complexity and character despite the lightness. At 10 years old it's very smooth; you don't really notice the 100 proof. I hate to call a bourbon "pretty," but this one is, maybe elegant is the word. But although not in the big, boisterous, intense style I like, still a decent bourbon.

I was hoping for some of this to reach AL this next few months but if prices are 75.99 I would almost certainly pass.

So if this is HH wheated, how does it compare to a a 12yr VSOF?

It's better in my opinion.

That's both good and bad to read :) I wasn't moved by the 12. Now I've got an endorsement from a trusted palate...dammit!

I agree. I did a blind SBS on both last year and the RY was the clear winner.

PM me and I'll send you a sample of a different barrel if you're interested in trying another. I've liked this stuff but I've only tried a few barrels. Maybe I've gotten lucky with the ones I've tried or maybe my taste buds aren't as discriminating as some other people here. With a bunch of barrels there is bound to be some variation though so I don't doubt that some people have gotten better ones than others.

I'll let you try mine as well (from the more recent release of it here in town) when we cross paths again.

 

It definitely does NOT taste like any Weller or Makers or other wheaters I've tried.  It's different and that's why I like it. 

Find my self constantly drawn to the bottle, because I can't figure it out.  It's like a new girlfriend in my sea of familiar faces. :)

Thanks for the generous offers. I might take you up on that.  But then if I like it this time I'm going to want to get a bottle of it and now it's hard to find again. Lol

Uh Hummmmm. <_< Even if y'all are just kidding around, if you're gonna talk trades and what not, the open forums isn't the place. Handle it in private from now on please.

 

Thanks. Joe

Easy, Sheriff. 

Just messing around. 

Clueby didn't care his bottle and I'm just teasing him.  That's what the winky face emoji was / is for.

 

My apologies to the forum...

 There's been a bit of messing around on the site lately. I thought it was time for a "gentle" reminder.
