Whiskey Dreams – Bib & Tucker

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.

Pros

  • Smooth.
  • Great start of cinnamon and earth that finishes with licorice.
  • Hit my palate in all the right places.

Cons:

  • Undeniably expensive.
  • So good it makes budget whiskey taste bad.
  • Earth & licorice may be too strong for some drinkers.
