Rock Town Bourbon
From the Rock Town Distillery in beautiful Arkansas, comes their Arkansas Bourbon Whiskey (previously known as the Arkansas Young Bourbon, which won Double Gold in the Small Batch Bourbon 10 Years and Younger and a Gold in Best Bourbon - No Age Statement categories at the San Francisco World Spirit Competition 2013). With a new name and a new label, this delicious, small batch bourbon is just as handsome as before, brimming with corn, vanilla, plump raisins and a hint of oak.

A step up from the usual
After reading about the new venture in Little Rock and reviews of Rock Town bourbon I ordered this with some anticipation. It was however a real disappointment, The whiskey is very, spirity, minty and thin. Not at all as I expected or believed. It really is a very young whiskey which may very well grow in future years to a decent bourbon but dropping the title 'Young' from the original label does not mean a mature whiskey and all the marketing in the world won't help. Maybe one for the future.

I was given a sample of this from a friend and although I've tried a few bourbons in the past, this is one I've never heard of so was looking forward to trying it. Upon opening the sample I was greeted with the expected smell of vanilla although there was hints of menthol along with it. I decided to drink it without any ice or water and it has a slightly thick texture with the taste matching the smell with the vanilla and menthol coming through. It has a fairly long finish with the menthol giving way and leaving a sweet vanilla taste in my mouth. Overall I can see why this is more than the usual bourbons you find in the supermarkets, the taste is far superior and I know I'll be buying this instead of the more common ones from now on. 9/10

Nose: Vanilla, molasses, pine, rum-soaked raisins. Palate: stewed plums, oak, corn syrup. Finish: almonds, cloves, toasted sugar, cereal. Overall: an easy, tasty bourbon. Definitely a step up from the bourbons I've tried in the £20-30 bracket.

Nose: Vanilla, some kitchen herbs and spices, a little mint, Wintergreen oil and oak.
Palate: A decent mouthfeel, again more mint and a little wintergreen oil, maize, rich dark stewed fruits and some cola cubes.
Finish: The finish is long with notes of vanilla, mild sweet oak, some herbs and a little spice.
