Fistful of Bourbon

Friday night with a nice bourbon and a Clint Eastwood western movie. This is one of my pleasures of life and a bourbon that sounds like a western is an icing on the cake. Today I am reviewing Fistful of Bourbon, it is a blend of straight bourbon whiskies . Even the mini sampler comes in a nice glass bottle unlike cheaper plastic ones. It is aged in new charred oak barrels aged for a minimum of two years. Now for the best part lets see if this fistful packs any punch or falls flat on it's knees. Time for my tasting . Enjoy!

Serving glass- Glencairn whisky glass
Serving style- Neat
Appearance- Light golden

Aroma- Corn, vanilla, fruits and hint of oak & nuts. Aromas from all different bourbons blended
Flavor- Many different flavors from the blends corn,caramel, vanilla, oak. Strong omnipresent burning sensation, spicy, some sweetness but has more bite to it like a fireball whisky.

I like the idea of blended bourbon and the taste is soothing.

A little humor
