Day 7 gives us Roughstock Montana, a “Bourbon Whiskey” that’s 45% alcohol. 2015-12-07 Roughstock Montana

I don’t get much nose from this one, it’s not as boozy as most of the previous offerings. In the mouth, it’s a different story, as there is a pronounced corn taste, and a somewhat bitter aftertaste that lingers.

It feels… young. Unfinished. Like it needed another couple of years of aging, or something. Feels like it would be a mixer rather than something I’d drink straight. In the interests of science, I tried a bit of water, and that helped immensely – the corniness dimished, as well as the bitter aftertaste. Still not awesome, but much improved.

One star, two with water.
