Boondocks American Whiskey Cask Stength
TASTE: Cherries | Vanilla | Baking Spices | Leather
FINISH: Long with multiple waves. Fills your mouth and chest. One of the better finishes I’ve experienced with an American Whiskey.
SHARE WITH: At 127 proof this version might be aimed more at whiskey aficionados and I think they will enjoy it. It is a very complex yet balanced whiskey. I wouldn’t shy away from offering this to more inexperienced whiskey drinkers either.
WORTH THE PRICE: The MSRP is $59.99 and I know I am not alone having paid far more for much less. This is a great Cask Strength Whiskey and I would be happy to pay that price.
BOTTLE, BAR OR BUST: This is a true value whiskey and I look forward to trying additional bottlings that Dave and Boondocks’ introduce.
OVERALL: I enjoy higher proof whiskey so I enjoyed the Cask Strength bottling a little more than the 95 proof but both are very good. Dave is a legend in the business and these bottlings are another achievement he should be very proud to put his name on.
