Joe Got a Gun Tennessee Whiskey Single Barrel Review. What a cool name for this single-barrel whiskey.
The nose is creamy, rich, and buttery. This appealing aroma is evident as soon as you open the bottle. A little bit of warm spice and dark brown sugar notes are there. A close-up of the nosing reveals a little bit of ethanol, but that quickly disappears. There’s a beautiful warming density and dark characteristic to the nose. White pepper and honey, but more sweet than dry.
The palate is a change-up from the nose because there’s a smokiness combined with baking spices. Based on the nose, you might think Joe Got a Gun Tennessee Whiskey Single Barrel would lean toward the sweet end of the spectrum, but it does not. This is a more dry experience than sweet. However, it has a pleasant, balanced taste and is easy to drink at 90 proof. Nice woody peanut notes, too, are present. This is good but somewhat dangerous (in a good way) because it’s not aggressive.
This is a decent value for a $39.99 MSRP whiskey.
