Pipe Dream Bourbon Whiskey is named after the 14th largest tree on the planet. As the first bourbon whiskey coming from Redwood Empire Distillery, Pipe Dream sits at 90 proof and is a blend of barrels aged between 4 and 12 years. It is made from a high corn mashbill.
Colour ... Yellow gold.
Nose ... The nose is fairly sweet. It starts with notes of candied orange and transitions into a cherry syrup. Corn is very noticeable, but not in a way that typically denotes a young bourbon. There is a certain musty funk to it, likely from the older-aged barrels. It has a nice, thick nose.
Palate ... The palate is medium-thick. Sweet corn is present all throughout the palate. Next up are notes of orange marmalade, that stick to the mid-palate pretty well. This then transitions to that nice cherry syrup flavour on the back palate. There are some darker, almost grape like flavours on the front of the palate that disappear after the whiskey is swallowed. This is a very nice palate for a lower proof bourbon!
Finish ... The finish is medium, and begins with orange marmalade notes on the mid palate. These transition to oak spice and bread notes, that eventually coat the entire palate, including the roof of the mouth. The finish is much longer than one would expect and is fairly viscous.
In Closing ... Wow, very impressive. The blending of the older barrels into the batched really elevated this whiskey to the next level. The depth of flavours was excceptional, and it did not really leave anything to be desired. This is one of the best 90 proof whiskies that you can buy for the price.
