Do you like toasted bourbon ?
We love it, so when found out that Red Line bourbon had a single barrel cask strength expression, we just had to have a bottle.
With every barrel comes a signature line. This “Red Line” is a caramelized layer of sugars that develops just beneath the char.
The Morley’s, a father and son duo with over 30 years of experience in the spirits world launched Red Line Whiskey in 2021 that began as a passion and a dream. They only produce single barrel expressions.
We hope you enjoy Jim and Mike’s review. Be sure to listen in to the podcast episode on your favorite platform for more information. Cheers!
Tasting Notes: Red Line Single Barrel Cast Strength Bourbon
Vital Stats: This is a 6 year old Indiana bourbon with a mashbill of 75% Corn, 21% Rye, 4% Malted Barley that has been finished in a toasted barrel. Our bottle is 118 proof and has an MSRP of $79.99.
Appearance: Almost a wine bottle with red mahogany whiskey inside.
Nose: Different right off the start with a pleasant sweetness. Lots of spice with some dark fruit. Light oak and spiced apple rings.
Palate: A full bodied aggressive whiskey. It’s pop rocks dancing across your tongue. Toasted marshmallow with allspice and a hint of liquorice. Some dried tangerine and Atomic fireball spice that will leave your lips numb.
Finish: Medium with a beautiful hug.
Overall: This is a great single barrel toasted bourbon at cask Strength that can compete with the giants of the whiskey industry. It’s a buy for us all day long. Keep doing what your doing Taylor, we thank you for sharing a bottle with us. Cheers
