Thanks to @paleopilot I’ve scheduled an MGP 12 year bourbon heavyweight battle between:
- North Carolina Bourbon Society’s 12 year, 102 proof.
- Litchfield Distillery 12 year MGP blend of 14 barrels, 113 proof.
...and my previous outlier for MGP bourbon picks....
- O.K.I. 12 year single barrel 120 proof ‘TeamDrunk’ pick.
Nose: it’s a tie between the Magnus and the OKI, you could wear it as cologne. Litchfield is only slightly muted, probably as it’s a blend but not on the ropes by any means.
Palate: The Litchfield has swung a haymaker here and going toe to toe with the OKI, unexpected!
Finish: the OKI takes it over the Litchfield though with the higher proof it was expected. For a blend of 14 barrels though it really is punching!
For me, after a sluggish start this became a 2 horse race with Litchfield and OKI. Both are epic MGP bourbon. The best I’ve had.
