Tasting Notes: Blue Note Crossroads
Vital Stats: This is a non age stated straight bourbon whiskey finished in toasted french oak barrels . It has a mash bill of 60% corn, 36% rye and 4% malted barley. Its 100 proof with a $40 MSRP.
Appearance: A standard whiskey bottle with a cool label maybe with the great Robert Johnson and his guitar. Dark sweet tea colored bourbon inside.
Nose: Marshmallow cream puff, fruit cups and a hint of cinnamon spice. Add in some vanilla from from the French oak staves.
Palate: Sweet, oaky with some sizzle. Camp fire s’mores, vanilla and oak. honeycomb cereal just coats the mouth.
Finish: Medium with a slight Tennessee hug.
Overall: It’s a buy all day long if you know the story of the crossroads and Delta Blues. Seriously though it’s very affordable at $40 for a toasted French oak finished bourbon.
