Reservoir Hunter & Scott Bottling Note

While their Bourbon, Rye and Wheat expressions are all made with 100% corn, 100% rye and 100% wheat (respectively), the folks at the Reservoir distillery are also rather accomplished at blending these spirits into fine tipples, too. This is their Hunter & Scott Bourbon, made with a combination of grains - not just one!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Melted chocolate, peach, pistachio ice cream and honeysuckle.

Palate: A slight vegetal hint as it opens, before raisin, caramel and fried banana notes take control.

Finish: Milky coffee, cinnamon and menthol.

Reservoir Hunter & Scott Bourbon Reviews

BAD

I really wished it tasted and nosed like the notes claim. But it smells chemically and taste the same. Plastic Bourbon is best I can come up with.

Makes my dessert taste bad

Waste of hard earned money, wish I researched this more. It makes my dessert taste bad. Chemical ragweed...sad I will be pouring this down the drain.

Great Bottle of Bourbon Whiskey

I think most of the reviewers here are nuts. I love a good bourbon whiskey and this one one of them. I bought this on a whim since I had never had of it. The liquor store owner said I would enjoy it. He was right. I will buy it again.

Poor-forced aging

This is for their "bourbon whiskey". Only $38. Color is beautiful copper brown. That's where it ends. I know Virginia has a great distilling history and wasn't afraid to buy this given it's color...I knew nothing about it. Brought it home...wow major disappointment. Then I did some research. This "whiskey" is forced. Meaning, and they really tout this on their website, it is aged one year...one...during that year it is heated and cooled and heated and froze and heated etc. to simulate "the equivalent of 10 years". This is a horrible sham happening due to the incredible popularity of bourbon. I love the art of distilling and I bet their distillate is great but they are shooting themselves in the foot by releasing this after one year. I am sure they need the money but I'll never buy their product again.

Tastes like mothballs

Something is wrong with this bourbon. This is by far the worst bourbon I have ever tasted. It smells and tastes like mothballs.

I took a bottle to a bourbon tasting with friends (15 bottles and 20 people). We poured this bottle down the drain! Sad and horrible.

Strange stuff........??

Very strange stuff. Not quite what the colour and the label suggested. Like many other reviewers I found the nose hard to place but it certainly has a chemical aspect to it. Even after letting it breath in the glass for over an hour it really didn't taste too good. We live and we learn and I for one won't be buying another bottle.

Cancelling my subscription to Garden & Gun

Was featured in Garden & Gun's annual holiday gift issue, so I picked up a bottle while passing through Virginia. Bought 2 bottles. Took them on my annual bourbon and bird hunting guys trip. Opened up the bottle and took a sip. I pictured going to a Home Depot and buying a can of Behr Avenu Tan and painting a room. Then put the brush in a coffee can and fill with turpentine. Then take a sip of that. That is what this bourbon tastes like. Tan paint in turpentine. The star of that show is the graphic designer who created the nice label on the bottle.

Overall delicious and smooth

Very good and smooth. Flavorful with a light finish. Definitely taste the milky coffee end with a hint of cinnamon.

Good To Have on Hand

I bought this in SC as a $29.99 throw away just because I like the label. Read the reviews after purchasing and maybe that impacted how I tasted this example. That being said, I was very pleasantly surprised. It is not an overly complex offering and at 1.5 years how can it be even in a small barrel? This makes a mean cocktail and I’ve enjoyed it as an end of day sipper if I need to unwind. With it being craft I can see where a variety of experiences can come to light but mine was all positive.

Really disappointed

Unbelievable. Was duped into buying because it said “17” in the year “box”. Guess it went into the bottle in 2017? Nonetheless bought 2. I like supporting local distilleries but this is unlike any bourbon I’ve ever had...and not in a good way. Strange notes throughout. Just not an enjoyable experience. Not knocking the people who work hard to create and distribute this to us. I’m sure the effort is there, but you can’t rush bourbon. They rushed it. It just wasn’t enjoyable despite the hefty price tag. Would’ve been better off with Very Old Barton 100 proof at $14. Sorry to spread bad news and negative reviews but this one isn’t good....in any way.
