Old Crow Reserve

Country: USA
Region: Kentucky
Type: Bourbon
Bottler: Distiller
ABV: 43%
Score: 75 points

This is Jim Beam’s attempt to bring more cachet to the venerable Old Crow bourbon brand, with 4 years in cask instead of the regular version’s 3. The nose has subtle spices and notes of vanilla, while the taste adds in hints of oak, black pepper, vanilla, caramel, and cola. The peppery notes linger on the slightly bitter finish. This bourbon is still young and somewhat fiery…I’d like to try it aged for another year or two.
