Welcome all to what I hope becomes a normal session for me introducing and reviewing bourbon. Always feel free to reach out to me for any whiskey, especially bourbon, related questions and I'll do my best to get back to you with awesome information!

Willett is well known for having phenomenal barrel picks that they source from other distilleries and then barrel and bottle in their own distillery. From 20+year rye whiskeys to premium wheated bourbons aging 22-25 years old, Willett is searched by drinkers and collectors for it's abundance in flavor and pure bliss.

They have been in the process of creating a line all their own. From grain to finished product, Willett has been developing their distillery to create premium whiskey. We've had their 2 and 3 year rye, but all the hype was with the release of the 4 Year Single Barrel Bourbon.

What I have tasted, and been extremely lucky to acquire, is a bottle of Willett 4 Year Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Bourbon. This bottle was out of Barrel No. 77 and bottled at 121.2 Proof.

The smell is phenomenal!! Great scents of sweetness, but also...HEAT!! This bourbon has the exact style of heat and flavor that I love.

The taste is not over powering nor is it weak. It's rich and complex when you swirl it around and smoothly sip on this. This bourbon drinks much nicer than I personally anticipated a 4 year old bourbon to taste. I'm excited to venture through this bottle and see how it opens up and welcomes me in.

Cheers Y'all!!
