    Mash Bill #2

    Rock Hill Farms – named after a famous piece of farmland along the Kentucky River – is produced at the Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankfort, Kentucky. They use Mash Bill #2, for what it’s worth. I can tell you that it’s the same mash bill as the one they use for Blanton’s and Elmer T. Lee. Anyway, this Rock Hill Farms is only released in small numbers in a lovely decanter. It is bottled at 50%.

    Soft and somewhat candy-like nose on Haribo bears, figs and plums, butterscotch and black pepper. Maple syrup? Nice fresh touch of mint. Oak – a garden shed that’s been in the sun for ages – kicks in, but the bourbon remains mostly sweet and soft.

    It is oily on the palate and pretty peppery. Dark and bittersweet, but also sour fruit rule the palate. A spicy note of rye kicks in with somewhat drying oak. Some toffee and cocoa, cuberdons and plum liqueur. Walnuts and aniseed. Popcorn. Playful but also with character (for a bourbon anyway, I know I’m a bit difficult that way, sorry).

    The finish enjoys mostly spices. Medium long and mildly warming, but certainly drying.

    Pleasant enough straight bourbon, but just a tad too much candy to my taste. Works like a charm in an Old Fashioned though.

    A very pleasant nose to this one - smooth, a bit of maple, and wood
    that’s been out in the sun for a few years. On tasting it, there’s a
    very full mouth feel and pretty heavy wood right off the bat. This
    really lingers on the tongue for a while and develops into a buttered
    popcorn then a touch of butterscotch and ending with a hint of fresh-cut
    grass, but really not very sweet for a bourbon.
