Blade and Bow Review: Is it a Good Whiskey?

Review by Mark Pringle |

74 General Review of Blade and Bow Bourbon


The initial nose of Blade and Bow is mild ethanol with what seems to be a little bit of rye spice beneath the ethanol. After pouring the bourbon, you need to let the glass sit for a minute or so before the traditional bourbon notes of caramel and vanilla become mildly noticeable. Additionally, there is a little bit of cinnamon spice intermingled in the traditional aromas. Everything on the nose of Blade and Bow is mild.


The initial sip of Blade and Bow seemed a little harsh for 91 proof bourbon. There is a tad bit of creaminess underneath the somewhat harsh palate. Additionally, I am able to discern on the nose a little bit of buttery creaminess.


There’s not much of a finish. The finish is in the esophagus, but it is relatively short.

Smell IS taste. I am just a guy who has been hit with the bourbon bug and who has come to the conclusion that life is too short to drink average tasting bourbons. Go Gators!
