MB Roland Bourbon 56.7% Bottling Note

Another single barrel bourbon from the MB Roland team out in Kentucky, USA! With a combination of white corn, rye, and malt in the mash bill, and aged in a single barrel with a #4 char to it, this expression packs oodles of vanilla, caramel, and spiced oak notes. It's bottled up at a robust 56.7% ABV, so a drop of water might help to unlock some of its deeper flavours.

MB Roland Single Barrel Straight Bourbon (56.7%) Reviews

Phenomenal flavour like no other!

Must start by pointing out that despite the handwritten label, and on closer inspection the %abv on this is actually 56.7% and not 54.7%. The 113.4 US proof confirms this fact if converted to abv.
Anyway, the actual whiskey is really one of my all time favourites. So easy to drink at cask strength although I prefer to add a little water eventually. On the nose distinct hint of liquorice when first opened then fades, full on sweet and salty corn almost popcorn, and caramelised sugar, and caramel.
The taste leads with the rich salted caramel and corn followed by dried fruits galore including sultanas and raisins in the finish alongside burnt oaky spiciness. Right at the end subtle notes of toffee apples, and pears more akin to a conventional bourbon from north-eastern Kentucky. Phenomenal taste profile that is almost like no other, and my theory is that one of the reasons this tastes so different to other bourbons is the hotter and more humid climate in South-western Kentucky on the border with Tennessee where the MB Roland distillery is situated. This added heat and humidity accelerates the barrel aging process further producing a darker, richer and more complex whiskey in my opinion.
