A high-rye Bourbon from The World’s Highest Distillery.
 
Based high in Rocky Mountains of Colorado at an altitude of 9600 feet, Breckenridge Distillery calls themselves “The World’s Highest Distillery.” And yes, we are pretty sure that the irony is intended. If you took a hard look at their impressive range of product offerings and more than 2 dozen awards — including winning “Distillery of the Year”… twice — you might think that they have been around a long time. But Bryan Nolt founded the place in 2007. That makes their achievements even more impressive. 
 
One of their signature products — and arguably one of their best sellers — is Breckenridge Bourbon. The first thing that a Bourbon fan might notice is that this is a blend… but don’t let that throw you. They mash and distill a lot of Bourbon in house and blend it with other high-rye, straight Bourbons from Tennessee, Indiana, and Kentucky.

They are pursuing flavor, and they get it for sure in this deeply hued dram with a luscious mouth-feel. What's the secret of the superior texture? According to Bryan, it's all about the pure, mineralized, snow-melt water that they have in abundance and use for distillation and proofing.

The temperatures of American warehouses are much higher, so the pace of maturation is much quicker for Bourbons than for Scotch Whiskies

Ratings & Reviews
Matthew
Matthew,
The is a very nice bourbon. The first thing I notice on the nose is banana, tropical fruit and vanilla; the vanilla is further accentuated with a touch of water. When tasting, the tropical fruit and banana carry through. There was also a honey-sweetness that was pleasant, as well as an interesting mineral flavor. The nicest part of the whiskey is its syrupy mouthfeel. It is not one of my must-haves, but I would be happy to have it in my home bar.
Jeffrey
Jeffrey,
Sweet notes you'd expect from this kind of whiskey. Pretty smooth, though a bit spicy at the end. A good bourbon.

Nate
Nate,
This is a good bourbon. Great smell. I believe it to be a tad on the spicy side for a bourbon, however.

I am not much for Bourbon. It was sweet, it was fine.

Patrick,
Love this bourbon. If you happen to be in Breckenridge, do the after hours private tour. up to 10 people for $100 and you get a better tasting period than the free tour, you won't regret it!

Liked it! Smooth and light.
Paul
Paul,
Breckenridge bourbon is a nice easy going bourbon. Great on the rocks, or with a little water. Sweet, a little vanilla and spice - but be aware that it has a little astringency. I like to sip on this, with some food.

Solid bourbon - a bit hot, but good vanilla/cherry notes from the barrel. Not a lot of malt.

Middle of the road. Good. Nothing special.
Eugene
Eugene,
I liked it. I could taste roasted and toasted aspects of it. Some spicy notes were tasted as an after. A bit of vanilla, but nothing much could be discerned well.
John
John,
Rich bourbon flavor and smooth.
James
James,
Agree with other reviewers that it's flavorful, but the honey doesn't mix well with the other flavors and it ends up tasting like bitter cough syrup. There is a bite, albeit a small one. Will not be buying again.

It burns at the end.

Smooth at first. Burns at end. Sweet in a vanilla way. Too coarse of a burn for me.
Leonard
Leonard,
Very smooth drink. Felt thin in the flavor and finish. Honestly felt a little like a Candian in the finish.

Gale

I liked it but still for me not as full as I like. Would I buy it again, probably. Smooth, lacked in flavor or heat that I like.

Patrick
Patrick,
Not as smooth and flavorful as other Colorado Whiskeys. Proofing is questionable as the bottle I purchased locally (Colorado) had froze. I put it in the freezer to enjoy it cold with a little water without diluting it too much. Both Stranahans and Tina Cup held up much better and proved to be superior in every respect. Tin Cup gets the edge over Strana hans due to pricing. (Stranahans was the best Whiskey but at a 40% premium it fell to the very good Tin Cup). Save your money on this one.
Roger
Roger,
Smooth and enjoyable, goes great with a Cigar.

Smooth but no memorable flavor.
Chris

This is an incredibly easy drinking Bourbon. Sweeter than some, and lacking the heat that you get from many.
Randall

William

Smooth and mellow. One of my favorites.
Brian
Brian,
I thought it was made in the same barrel as Jack Daniels and tasted better with dr.pepper flavored ice cubes.
Robert
Robert,
Loved it. One of my absolute favorites!
Brad
Brad,
I'm not well versed in bourbon, but I enjoyed this one quite a bit. It was very mellow, lacked the bite others have. I purchased this or my wife and she enjoyed it as well.
Edward
Edward,
A little different from the others but its one on my top shelf.
Paul
Paul,
This bourbon warmed me all the way down to the tip of my toes! It was strong but not overwhelming, with a nice spicy flavor.
Christopher
Christopher,
One of my favorite whiskeys for the price point. As Daniel said, takes a but to get all the flavors.
anonymous
anonymous,
I drank this stuff up so quick I hardly remember it. If that is anything to base an opinion on....it was great, judgement passed! Thumbs up!
Eric
Eric,
I completely agree with Daniel. After a few drams over the last week, I've noticed the flavors have become much clearer. I can definitely taste the clarity that the water from Rocky Mountain snowmelt contributes to the blend. This bourbon needs a lot of oxygen to be fully appreciated. It's no High West, but it's still delicious.
anonymous
anonymous,
Decent. A bit flat.
Daniel
Daniel,
Good, but hard to pin down flavors and aroma. I would recommend it, but don't expect to really get it on your first drink.

Perfect with a Kuba Kuba
