Prichard's Double Barreled Bourbon: Whisk(e)y Wednesday presented by Calandro's Supermarket

Prichard's Double Barrel Bourbon
Prichard's Double Barreled Bourbon out of Tennessee scored extremely well with our judges, though there were some differing opinions.  Eric scored it a 90 while James had it at 72. Jeremy and I were in the middle with 82 and 81, respectively.  The nose is a delightful bouquet.  Jeremy caught whiffs of green gummy bears, Eric notice vanilla ice cream with caramel syrup, and I thought it smelled like a sweet corn pudding.  The corn definitely came through on the palate as a spicy corn bread balanced with honeysuckle.  The bourbon is complex with lots of flavors that stand out including an excellent marriage of smoke and sweet.  It hits all over the tongue, lingers with spice, and the dissipates with nice astringency.  Prichard's Double Barreled Bourbon is definitely one to look out for when thinking about adding some artisan bourbons to your collection, and it is available in Louisiana!

Whisk(e)y Wednesday is a blog post series on Bite and Booze sponsored by Calandro's Supermarket. Calandro's has one of Baton Rouge's best selections of bourbon, Scotch, and other whisk(e)ys as well as wine and craft beer. WW is created and rated by the hosts of Raise a Glass. Scores are marked for Nose, Taste, Finish, and Balance and Complexity using our own propriatary scoring system. Marks are then added and averaged, leaving us with a final score out of a 100 point scale. Our scale should be looked at on the full range of 0-100 rather than an academic range where 70 is passing and anything less is failing. A 50 should be considered a very mediocre whisk(e)y while anything below 20 is absolute horse piss and anything above 90 is rather extraordinary.

  1. I'd definitely like to try this!!! You make it sound delightful. This is the same company that makes the bitters? I've never seen this whiskey though. Still, I think I'd like it.
