Whisky Reviews for Bourbon Supreme 05-year-old

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.00 points

  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    An obscure brand distilled and bottled at the infamous Pekin facility in Illinois (DSP 2 according to the label), then owned by the American Distilling Company inc. Mind you that in the past Illinois was one of the biggest bourbon producing states of U.S. I guess that this whiskey was distilled somewhere before 1980. In that year MGP Ingredients - then known as Midwest Grains - purchased the Pekin plant.
    • Nose
      Very clean and spirity at first nosing, but not in an annoying way for me. Freshly saved wood. Slightly feinted and polish. Vanilla. Cooked apples as well. Whiff of almond.
    • Taste
      Unexpectedly rich and round. Gingerbread. Also butterscotch. Cinnamon. Brown Sugar. Buttery notes. Later on more on strawberries and cherries. Candy apple. Some pine.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Cayenne pepper. Caramel. Bitterness intermingeld with spearmint at the end. Well balanced. A surprisingly pleasant bourbon from the old days.

    Colour: chestnut oloroso
    It was a great experience and pleasure to taste this old and rather unkown bourbon. Quality wise it's very decent to say the least, with just the finish being on the short and bitter side. For the rest, you get a combination of sugar related notes, together with fruit and spice.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Rather narrow in the beginning, with pencil shavings, paint thinner, furntiure polish, pine needle. Later, some sweet associated notes come into play: popcorn, caramel, apple sauce, vanilla, and dark cherries.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Good body with punch (pleasant). It's a good combination of vanilla, butterscotch, sugar, cooked fruit, and ginger, nutmeg and dark peppercorn.
    • Finish
      83 83
      A bit short, dominated by pepper and ginger(bread), caramel, brownie and dark cherry.
