Filibuster Distillery – The Boondoggler Whiskey (750ml)
Filibuster Distillery Description
The Boondoggler is a wholly different approach to blending. We use various mash bill elements, including Corn, Barley & Rye and a wide selection of barrels to achieve a complex and flavorful Whiskey like nothing else out there. Our proprietary aging method includes time in New American White oak, Red & White wine-seasoned French oak, and Fino & Pedro Ximenez Sherry casks. “The Boondoggler” is neither a Bourbon or a Rye in the traditional sense, but combines elements of both for a one of a kind taste experience.
Whiskey Advocate: 88 Points
Billed as a whiskey that combines elements of bourbon and rye, the nose blends pine forest, lime, green cardamom, coriander, orange, cinnamon, and raisins. The palate is a balance of freshly baked cinnamon buns, chocolate, pistachio, baked apple, cloves, and cracked pepper. The finish is punctuated by sweet vanilla syrup and bitter orange, pipe tobacco, and light pepper. Smooth and pleasant, it perhaps could use more aging, but is well executed nonetheless.
