Bib & Tucker 10 Year Old Small Batch Bourbon Whiskey is from Tennessee and aged for at least 10 years in American Oak with Char #1. This bottle comes right after its 6-year-old sibling which I have already reviewed here. You can also find more information about the brand and the name on this review.
The Whiskey is showing similarities with the 6-year-old in means of being approachable and hitting on the right aromas. However, it is way more complex and the texture completely changes the feeling.
How Does It Taste?
The nose has most of the aromas rushing to your nose. That might be a bit uncomfortable at the very first moment, but it eases down with time. Flavors like candied orange, cinnamon, toasted oak with a nice amount of pears create a good bright gathering.
The palate is thick and creamy which the 6 year old lacked. Pastry custard, caramel, oak spices and milk chocolate are dominant aromas. Carob bitterness create a flow to the finish with soft character full of kettle corn, chestnut, coffee and chocolate.
I found Bib & Tucker 6 Year Old a simple and joyful one, but Bib. & Tucker 10 year old is at another level. The texture on the palate and depth of layers is fun to follow. I simply enjoyed the intermission from the palate to the finish a lot.
