Have you ever seen the classic #80’s movie Crossroads staring Ralph Macchio ?

Big Chief was passing through Memphis and came across a bottle of Blue Note Bourbon, Blue Note Crossroads from B.R. Distilling Company that brought back memories of the Delta Blues movie.

What happens when Big Chief picks up a new bottle of interest?    He and Jim sit down and give it a review.   Be sure to check out the podcast episode on your favorite platform for more information.  We hope you enjoy the review.  Cheers!

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.
