Fighting Cock Bourbon Whiskey formerly carried a 6 year age statement, however that was removed in 2015 and now is bottled as a non age stated (NAS) variant. Based on its labelling, the law requires the youngest bourbon in the bottle to be at least four years old, however Heaven Hill has stated they continue to include older whiskey in the blend.

Tasting Notes Of Fighting Cock Bourbon Whiskey

 

Nose

Banana forward with light vanilla, walnut, and oak in the background. It doesn’t have a complex aroma, but its simplicity doesn’t mean it’s boring either. In fact, it’s quite inviting. There is zero ethanol present, which for a sub $20 higher proof bourbon, is surprising.

Palate

Super sweet with a touch of heat. The palate has a nice mouthfeel, and is dominated by baked bananas drizzled with syrup. Additionally, you get a nice amount of heat via a mixed black and white pepper combination, which ends up complementing the sweeter notes. While the palate is also on the simpler side, it’s very enjoyable.

Finish

The finish is contrasting compared to the sweeter nose and palate that come before it. The peppery heat carries through to start the finish, and is joined with oak and leather to form a drier overall finish profile. The finish is shorter and disappointingly ends rather abruptly without any fanfare.
