Henry McKenna 10 Year Review. Mild Notes Throughout.

Review by Mark Pringle |

77 General Review of Henry McKenna 10 Year-Old Single Barrel Bottled in Bond

Henry McKenna (10 year) Bottled in Bond Single Barrel has a little fruity spice in the nose but everything is mild. Mild ethanol. Mild spice. Many of the notes are imperceptible. However, I sense light butterscotch. If you let the glass it for a while, a little bit of caramel comes through on the nose. Any aroma you perceive on the nose seems to dissipate after a while.

The palate also has a sweet buttery oak that's not strong. Again, it has very traditional bourbon notes that are milder than I would like.

There's an appropriate smoothness for a 100 proof Bourbon, maybe a little bit smoother than one would expect. There’s no complexity to this at all. This is simply a traditional Bourbon with a slight hint of spice. Light oak flavors.

Nice medium-length heat on the finish with the same traditional bourbon palate.

Barrel No. 10602. Bottled on 4/26/2011

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!
