Corsair Insane In The Grain Bourbon

Country: USA
Region: Tennessee
Type: Bourbon
Bottler: Distiller
ABV: 48%
Score: 90 points

Most Bourbons only have three grains in the mashbill, a few have four, but the folks at Corsair used 12 different grains in this Bourbon! In addition to the mandatory 51% corn, there are two different types of barley, along with blue corn, rye, wheat, oats, quinoa, spelt, sorghum, millet, and triticale. The nose is so aromatic that one can smell it from a foot away, with notes of oak, popcorn, mild cinnamon, maple syrup, and molasses. The taste is spicy, yet still manages to be creamy. Cinnamon and chili powder spices don’t overpower the dark chocolate, maple, and caramel sweetness underneath. The finish fades smoothly with lingering spices and hints of maple and caramel.  (February, 2013)
