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

A bourbon from Tennessee?  Why, yes.  We've seen Prichard's before on Whisk(e)y Wednesday.  Both their Double Barreled Bourbon and Lincoln County Lightning have graced the blog, but this time we take a sip of the Double Chocolate Bourbon!  The scent of bitter chocolate graces the nostrils at first whiff, followed by a pleasant aroma of whiskey.  The bourbon hides the chocolate more on the taste than the nose.  It is noticeable  but subtle.  The chocolate flavor is more that of cocoa powder than a candy bar.  It is different, unique, and worth a try.  While it is a bit weird, it gets bonus points for the effort to do something different.  Prichard's Double Chocolate Bourbon Whiskey loses a bit of pizzazz on the finish, and the balance is peculiar, but don't say no if you see a bottle.  Give it a try and see what happens!

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.
