Distilled for Alan Jackson, this 91pf Kentucky Straight bourbon makes no bones about its purpose. Alan Jackson likes whiskey, and he wanted a brand created for him, and here it is. It”s released in “Charts” rather than batches, each named for a notable hit song of his. Let’s dive on in!
Mild buy inviting, full of sweet, rising bread, apples and pears. There isn’t a ton going on, but it’s pleasant and inviting.
Young but not offensive. Proofed nicely, it has some pleasant body to it. Apples, cinnamon, clove and pears. This drinks like a soft, smooth, apple pie in a glass.
The finish is easily this dram’s greatest strength: it’s longer than expected, and continues to present warm brown sugar, crisp apple and a touch of clove.
Overall, this whiskey is just fine. It’s always interesting when another celebrity whiskey joins the pack, but this release performs well compared to its peers. Smooth, easy drinking, and simple.
