I picked up a bottle of Bib & Tucker and honestly debated whether I wanted to spend close to eighty dollars on the bottle. Because it was so expensive, I actually had it on the shelf and reached passed it for a good month because I was subconsciously saving it.
Once I opened it, the bottle went quickly, and unfortunately my wife was with me when I went shopping and saw how much it cost when I put another bottle in the cart. Ouch.
So, how did I like it? Honestly Bib & Tucker may not be for everyone. It has a strong earthy flavor with hints of cinnamon and really strong licorice overtones. For some, the strong but peculiar flavor may be a turn off, but for me Bib & Tucker 6 year old bourbon was the perfect mix of smooth and strong with a clean mouth feel.
Overall, Bib & Tucker is now the most expensive bourbon on my shelf, and also the highest ranked at 91/100.
- Great start of cinnamon and earth that finishes with licorice.
- Hit my palate in all the right places.
- Undeniably expensive.
- So good it makes budget whiskey taste bad.
- Earth & licorice may be too strong for some drinkers.
