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.
Being a purest, I am aghast that this is a blended, perhaps overblend of other distilleries cast offs and left overs. Phooey on you for that. However, beside knowing that it is a nicely sweet, after asian food drinker. I wouldn't go out of my way to buy this. But then again I am a purest!
Smooth with a sweet honey finish. Pretty high standards to add a non-Kentucky made bourbon to my bar.
Very solid and smooth. The sweeter notes of honey, vanilla, and toastiness predominate. Not challenging or terrifically interesting. Just a very nice, drinkable bourbon.
I’ve yet to taste a better whisky.
Starts like a bourbon with notes of scotch flavor profiles. Definitely like the honey and sweet finish.
Smooth and yummy!
This is an easy sipping smooth bourbon.
I liked it...nice, easy to drink...great after taste. Could pick up the sweetness, but not at all overpowering.
It had less flavor than I had hoped for.
Harsh at first but after adding an ice cube and waiting three minutes or so flavors really mellowed out. Syrupy sweetness on the front, bite and peppery oak on the back. Not very smooth flavor transition - elements are overwhelming
Smooth good flavor
Warm taste with a splash of sweet honey and roasted flavor.
Nice and smooth. The hint of spice is not my favorite, but over all all very nice.
First drink from my welcome pack so we’ll see if my opinion changes over time.
A good Whiskey. It tasted similar to Jim Beam in my opinion. Just a bit smoother.
Smooth and nice but not much to it
Great flavor, smooth finish.
Just sweet enough with a taste of toastiness.
Toasted bread, honey, and pecan. Sweet and very drinkable but less complex than I typically look for in a sipping whiskey.
Very smooth with a hint of honey.
Nice spice. A bit thin on the back end - wanting a bit more complexity here. A bit sweet. Not quite as juicy as a Tennessee. Not as three dimensional as I'd want. But overall a good bottle.
Extremely smooth, honey and spice finish.
Honey and vanilla upfront with a spicy medium finish. It definitely grows on you!
Lots of honey and some banana. Easy to sip with a clean finish. While not as interesting as some, I could drink this as a go-to for any occasion.
Very smooth and delicious, could have been aged a few more years and it would have been perfect.
Just enough barrel to make this sweet water interesting. I’m afraid to add any more water for fear of it washing away. Lots of honey and I get the banana a bit.
Really surprised as I thought Stranahans was the king of Colorado, BUT totally digging this bourbon. Hats off to the distillery. Love the sweetness!!
I’m not usually “a sipper”. And I don’t usually go for Bourbon. However, I found myself surprisingly happy with this one. Very smooth. Honey is evident right off. Bit of a twang, but vanilla edges that out. This changed my mind about bourbons.
Very smooth and sweet bourbon. Easy drinking.
Has a sweet top feel and finishes with a slight spice. Surprisingly smooth with a sharp nose feel.
Good smooth bourbon. Great smell and good finish. Just the right amount of sweet.
A very drinkable bourbon. Best as a mixer.
Good and smooth, less depth than other bourbons, but very drinkable.
Absolutely love this stuff! smooth and refreshing across your breath. Can't wait to visit the distillery next month!
Very smooth - best bourbon that my wife and I have ever tasted. Dennis and Christine in TN
Smooth and sweet. Very light taste that could be good in a cocktail.
Nose: honey, corn, light oak
Taste: honey and corn,slight spice and banana, some cinnamon on the finish
Smooth up front with legs on the end. A mature whiskey with full flavors. Adding a bottle of this to the bar.....
New to the finer side of tasting. Enjoyed very much for first timer. Warm start with a slow roasting burn that makes you reach for more before you know it.
Didn’t really think it resembled a bourbon, tasted more like a rye whiskey. Better neat then in cocktails if you normally use bourbon for it.
It was good, but forgettable. Really stuck on the other whiskey that was in my tasting box as opposed to this one.
Pretty decent and very light. Not full of in-your-face flavors and that's perfectly fine.
Not my favorite bourbon. I can’t say it’s not solid, but nothing stood out about it.
Overall a decent bourbon. For me it was light and sweet on the nose. I definitely picked up vanilla, honey, and spice on the palette though it was a bit light for me. Going down it was smooth with just a hint of burn. Looking forward to trying their port cask finished bourbon.
Loved it, very smooth and much more than what I expected it to be!!
Just received this in my sample pack. It was good, not great, but good.
I am no expert but I think in this price range, Four Roses single barrel and small batch are better for me. Elijah Craig small batch too.
Out of the 3 samples I received, this was our favorite. Nice flavor. Milder than the others. For the price I would recommend this.
Delicious bourbon. Good balance of sweet, Smokey, and fruity.
Sweet honey nose, goes down smooth and leaves a smoky taste.
A very nice bourbon , full of carmel ,very nice to sip on.
Best of the lot
Warm, smooth, caramel
Smooth, easy sipping..
Smooth and sweet. Good flavor.
Our favorite of the introductory trio. Very soft and sweet. My husband said "buttery" after the first sip.
I like this one.
Breckenridge Bourbon. Not my favorite bourbon. Tastes too young. Not undrinkable by any means, just not something I'd actively seek out.
Felt pretty much the same way!
Easy sipping. The notes of honey are noticed. Does not pack a big punch.
A decent bourbon but not as smooth or complex as many others. I think another year or two in the barrel.
Easy sipping. Not too spicy or overwhelming.
Really enjoyed the flavor from start to finish
Pleasant aroma with a smooth finish. Only a slight burn after
Enjoyable. A little dry for my taste. Great flavor.
Perfectly acceptable, but didn't stand up to Chieftan's 19 year.
Sickly sweet with rotten banana
Definitely purchasing this
nothing overly special, a little burn on the finish.
Best of the welcome box. Good bourbon, pretty smooth!
Flavorful and smooth
Sweet and a little thin.
This was a good whiskey
Sweet, tasty, very smooth.
Really smooth with a great flavor.
Smooth good flavor
First sample I tried in my welcome box. Tasty and very drinkable. A little on sweet end.
Sweet and smooth
Balanced and drinkable, maybe a little bit too sweet
Don’t normally like bourbons. More into Irish and Scotch whiskys. This was fantastic, though
Spice, vanilla, and fruit! A delicious sweet bourbon.
Smooth, clean, spicy. I'm a fan.
Wonderful nose. 10/10 on aroma. Got some peppery notes from the spicy part of the taste.
Good taste. Very nice spiciness with a fruitiness.
Strong banana and smoke flavors. Slightly too spicy for me, but still a great pour.
Very smooth . A must for home bar.
A lot of bite, with a burn finish.
Excellent florals and a smooth finish. Will order for sure
This is a high quality "meh" bourbon. I'd happily drink it in a bar. It would be on the top shelf in a bar but isn't holding a place on my shelf. The flavor profiles are accurate although I dont get any sweet honey flavors, more like the essence of honey. Good pour nonetheless.
Nice mellow full bodied spirit, with a little heat on the back end.
very smooth with a great taste. will be making another purchase of this bourbon.
Very smooth drink. Not what I expected. I’d definitely buy a bottle.
Delicious and smooth!
Much smoother than I expected. Very easy to enjoy neat.
Not bad. Definitely has a pretty unique flavor. I really like the nose on tbis.
Great Whiskey. I'm usually a single malt drinker. This bourbon has great flavor, almost a toasted honey sweetness, but not too sweet. Complex with great finish.
Decent whisky. It has a bite on the front that makes it somewhat of a chore to process the rest of the pallet. Overall not sure if I would opt for it again, but love the concept of the Breckenridge distillery.
I really liked this one. I dug the fact that I got a banana nut bread smell and taste.
Really enjoyed the complexity of this bourbon.
Sweet honey and vanilla nose and palette. Very slight warm spice finish. One of a large group of good middle of the road bourbons depending on your individual preferences.
Smooth and toasty.
Smooth and sweet.
Very smooth. I really enjoyed this. Would probably buy a bottle in the future.
Outstanding! Very smooth as others have mentioned. I think Flaviar nailed it with the tasting notes.
You will have a hard time finding a bourbon that's a smoother finish than this one! A top choice if you're looking for a drink to please the masses. Unfortunately if honey is not your go-to sweetener, you might not be able to pull the sweet taste of it out form the banana and bread. If that sounds like you don't pass this Breckenridge bourbon by it's still worth a taste just not a full bottle.
A bit of a strong “Kentucky hug,” especially in the mouth-feel, but overall great caramel notes
Probably one of the smoothest drinks I have had.
The caramel and honey come through - lovely nose! Long legs, if a bit rough. A good choice, but not my top.
About as smooth as I've tasted. My go-to liquor.
I’m not a bourbon fan the begin with. Breckenridge has good coloring and an aroma I could not identify well. The taste was a little too bitter for me and not as smooth as I expected after reading the above reviews.
Smooth, very enjoyable
Definitely get honey right off the bat! Spicy after tones and lingers with a smooth vanilla aftertaste. Overall not bad for sipping on the rocks.
Good solid bourbon. Not much complexity but satisfying.
Not as smooth as I expected but very flavorful.
Not very smooth and a bit too bitter for my taste.
Smoothness from the honey with several after flavors. A good sipping bourbon, would go well with ham dinner.
Can taste the honey
Nose: Honey. Vanilla. A touch of banana. Some oak in the background. A little muted spice. At just the right angle in the Glencairn, a touch of pleasant must.
Palate: More spice. Some cinnamon. Banana bread. Oakier on the palate than on the nose. The spice continues. There’s rye in this. It’s not present on the nose, but it’s there on the palate.
Finish: It’s short. Slight tannins. You’d think with the palate, there’d be more to the finish. All that’s left after a second or two is some bitterness from the rye.
A decent whiskey. I’d have given it another star with a better finish.
Heavy honey and vanilla notes with a short smooth finish. Good summer sipping whiskey. Should pair well with iced tea and a porch for a relaxing evening.
Nice. Very quaffable. Spicy on the back.
Very fine bourbon with a smooth finish.
Very smooth. Wish it had a larger flavor profit but a solid bourbon
Still new to bourbon but this one was good. I mostly tasted the vanilla and not much of a burn at all. I’d buy this
I liked this bourbon. It’s smells a little sweet and tastes sweet as well, but not as smooth as I like it.
Incredibly smooth with a wonderful flavors
Smooth on the front end with a spice bite on the back. It lacks taste.
Solid bourbon. Good spice to the taste. My impression was that it was better to mix in a classic cocktail than standing alone.
Smooth finish, flavors are distinguishable. Overall good whiskey that I would recommend for a casual get together.
Very syrupy mouthfeel with nice honey notes. Good for sipping straight.
Smooth. Clean. Just like a bourbon should be!
Love this product!
Smooth bourbon with just a hint of honey sweetness.
Tried it neat. Some spice and some sweetness but a bit subdued for my taste. It was ok.
This has a nice and pleasing taste that can be appreciated, though reminds me a bit of burner (cocktail) bourbons that aren't as sophisticated. That said, I enjoyed it neat (with the heat) and with ice to open and cool. I think simply because of price tier vs quality I'd pass on it for my home bar vs more preferred brands in the same $ range. Though I won't deter from a reminder while out and about. Cheers!
Soft and sweet, not much spice.
Wonderful experience for all the senses!
Love this! Very smooth and it tastes like roasted honey. If roasted honey existed.
Nice touch of spice but does have a little harsh front. Smooth finish.
Good honey notes, little harsh on the front but smooth finish
Good every day bourbon has a little bite
Loved it! Smooth, sweet with a touch of spice.
Sweet notes not overwhelming. Smooth.
Good honey sweetness but not overwhelming. Notes of spice at the finish and fruit throughout. Enjoyed it neat but really opened up with just a little water.
Love it. Good and smooth with a little heat at the end.
Liked the caramel flavors, smooth drinking and easy on the palate. A good addition to my line of whiskeys.
Decent, but not great. The flavor was a bit weak... pepper and spice is apparent throughout. It opens up a bit with a dash of water, but is still lacking. Better bourbons are available for less.
Not very smooth. Slightly sweet. A little spicy. Not sure I would seek this one out specifically.
It was pretty good
A little hot and peppery on its own, but a little water and this whiskey changes character completely and is very, very drinkable. There’s a malty fruitiness and rye spice storm going on here and while it’s a little chaotic I found myself coming back for more. An interesting choice and one I would come back to again.
Little bite, honey flavor, oak and slight spices.
Solid, I try and keep a bottle around in the home bar.
A nice and solid, well rounded bourbon that will certainly make its way into my home bar.
Sweet, caramel, smooth
This bottle really shocked me! I was expecting something similar to another Colorado Whisky I had! This was gas superior! Definitely will be added to my home bar!
Definitely get the honey & sweetness right off the bat. Good amount of spice on the back end.
Smooth with a sweetness in the aftertaste. Great for a Manhattan.
Damn good, solid yet smooth and toasty with a nice caramel-like finish!
Definitely would recommend this bourbon. Slight Smokey flavor up front with bite at the end. Would buy again.
Very much a good solid bourbon. Nothing overtly struck me in the nose, but it went down smooth and had a kick in the after bite.
Smooth. Will get a bottle
Smooth drink, you can smell the rye and barley easily it it has a nice finish.
Goes down pretty smoothly. Unfortunately, the taste wasn’t too much to my liking. Not enough bite to it. Overall not bad though.
Relatively smooth but didn’t have the flavor I prefer. Still a good, solid bourbon.
Dont drink bourbon too often, but this was very smooth. I will definitley be buying this in the future
I enjoy the smooth taste
Decent starter bourbon, great for mixed drinks.
Delightful is the first thing that comes to mind. I am not a Bourbon drinker, but would definitely drink again. Smooth and not overwhelming. I got alot of banana in the aroma and taste.
Harsh taste. Not as smooth as I thought it would be. I’ve had better bourbons
Just a good, decent bourbon. Flavors are nice with not too much sweetness. Price is pretty good too. A nice bottle to keep around the house.
One of my all time favorite bourbons. The nose is sweet and intoxicating even my wife who isn’t a whiskey drinker enjoyed this spirit immensely. The flavors of toasted bread, honey, and vanilla with the sweet and spicy finish kept me coming back for more. I will most definitely be buying more of this.
slightly sweet, gets spicer with a few drops of water. Hot for its proof
nice sweet bourbon
I love this bourbon, it has a smooth start with a good strong finish. I used whiskey rocks just to chill it slightly and it really enhanced its taste
Definitely a favorite. Well balanced flavor. Fairly smooth with caramel and vanilla. Some oak taste but not too strong.
This was in my welcome
Box and was pleasantly surprised with how much I loved it! I live in Colorado and am so excited to buy this and get onboard with the brand!
Not bad, not a home bar pick though
Smooth start and good finish. Better than I thought it would be.
Very good. Heavy on the honey and a great every day drink.
Really smooth but almost too smooth. Feels like the spicy bite at the end is simply hiding. Its smooth but maybe it’s too smooth? Can’t tell if this makes me really like it or really be unimpressed. I’d happily keep this in the bullpen especially at its cost but I don’t know thug id seek it out.
Smooth and easy to drink. A good bourbon to introduce new people to the spirit
Not my cup of tea. Tastes great, strong burn going down.
Easy drinking with full flavor.
Smooth with a little sweetness. Easy to drink
Sweet. Easy to drink. Not bad. Not great. Not complex.
Easy to sip
Very smooth and can drink often
Smooth with a sweet finish. I’m more of a scotch person but this is pretty good for a bourbon.
Blind, I could definitely recognize this as bourbon so that is a good sign. I grew up in Colorado but lived in Kentucky for 6 years so that’s where I picked up the bourbon bug. I get vanilla, honey, sweetness. It’s got a little burn on the finish.
Very drinkable, the vanilla notes are a nice touch and really pull it together
Nice and smooth with a spicy finish. Definitely noticed a banana bread scent but without much sweetness didn’t come through in the taste. Got better with a bit of water but I really didn’t like it over ice, lost so much of its flavor.
Tasted like any generic bourbon found for $15 at a grocery store.
I thought this went down very smoothly. I enjoyed this one
spicy but smooth. I liked it on the rocks. Not so much neat. You can taste the honey. It's light and has a short, easy finish. It was my favorite of the three whiskey's in the Welcome Box.
Very mellow bourbon.
Warm, smooth, mellow honey.
Not a rockstar but very easy to drink.
This is definitely different -mellow yet very warm and flavorful. A very drinkable bourbon for those who like a little spicy bite at the end.
Nice traces of honey, bread, spice, and dried fruit. Smooth with spicy finish and bite!
Unique taste,very nice
not my favorite. nothing really stood out for me. definitely not bad for the price, i wonder how this would go in an old fashion
Smooth and easy drink. No overbearing scent or taste and smooth aftertaste.
has a distinct bourbon flavor but is sweet and smooth.
Toasted wood, honey & apricots on the nose. Taste of honey with some allspice, and a short finish. Overall very nice bourbon, and a pleasant drink.
Smooth, and not too caramel-y. Very nice
Confirms again that good bourbon can be made places other than Kentucky, but there is still plenty of room for maturation and producing a higher quality product for the price point.
Toasted with a light vanilla tone. Smooth. Very little bouquet.
Just a good bourbon, definitely but a bottle
It’s sweet and I like the notes of banana and vanilla. I don’t really enjoy spice or roasted flavor hence the lower rating, but good stuff.
Very smooth, great for nose and very subtle finish!
Very smooth and sweet with a little spice. Delicious finish. I don't like most bourbon hence the low stars, but it's objectively a great drink.
Great flavor and bold
Good for mixing not for sipping
Good flavor and could drink it neat.
Smooth with good flavor over the rocks
Deliciously floral aroma and then powerful flavors of honey and spice with a smooth finish. When I first tried this whiskey I thought it was going to be a lot pricier than it is. Dangerously good.
Love it. Poured it over ice was very refreshing.
Good flavor, but one heck of a bite
Was a little peppery to taste
Worth getting again
Quite the bite from the alcohol. Overpowers the honey notes. Expected it to be smoother, but it’s quite harsh. Glad I tried it, but wouldn’t stock in my home bar.
Easy drinking; the banana and honey notes are predominant. Slightly sweet.
Unexpected and unpleasant bite for the cost. Interesting to try but wouldn’t stock.
I was apprehensive about joining the club and was afraid I would only get samples that weren't even close to my preferences. After receiving the welcome box, I was surprised. Although my initial thought was "OMG", the box wasn't exactly what I would have purchased, I quickly fell in love with the Breckenridge Bourbon. So much so that I ran out to a local store and got a bottle immediately. I will purchase from the club next time however (the price is less at club level too).
This bourbon is not your typical bourbon. It's not overpowering or full of flavors that get in the way of the experience. It's smooth and literally taste like it came from the the pure snow melt flowing from the mountains of Colorado. The banana and vanilla mixes for a hint of sweet, almost like you mixed a little honey in, but definitely not overpowering. Add a splash of water on the rocks to really bring it to its full potential or pour it in your favorite cola, both are sure to please.
It was similar in taste to a Tennessee Honey by Jack Daniels but with a stronger vanilla flavor.
excellent flavor, just a splash of water really brings out the flavors
Strong flavor, toasted, bread, roasted
New to whiskey in general and while I haven’t developed a refined palate for it yet, this is a very smooth and drinkable selection from the welcome pack
Good bourbon. Notes of honey and fruit without being overpowering. No overpowering banana flavor.
I love that it has a bold honey flavor. Very smooth and bold throughout each sip.
Very good bourbon. You get that sweet honey shown on flavor spiral and then the spice comes in the end. Extremely smooth. Nice to let sit in your mouth before you swallow to really taste. One of my new favorites.
Just a whiskey. Nothing truly exciting or special.
The nose is full of candied herbaceous aromas like pine sap and birch beer soda. It runs across the palate lightening fast leaving the flavor of warm, flat coca-cola. I liked at first but on a second look its only aight.
Really nice bourbon with sweet taste. Not as nice, smooth finish as the Jefferson’s ocean aged at sea cask strength, but very nice and drinkable.
It might be because it's my first taster, but I really enjoyed how the aromas and flavors came through on this one. It's a bit sweet for my personal tastes, but I wouldn't turn down a glass.
This was just ok for me. I would drink it again but wouldn’t buy a bottle for my bar.
Smooth and light, a very gentle bourbon.
Part of welcome pack and I will say that the flavor spiral is pretty damn close. It took me some time with the banana. For me, it was not front and center and actually wasn’t until after the spicey finish that lingered rather pleasantly, subsided. While I was comparing with the spiral and thinking it really was smooth with one small cube of ice... banana popped into my taste. 😆 Bourbon tasting with Flaviar is really fun and I do think Breckinridge is nice, but might be a bit pricey. I will probably try again in not too distant future.
Smooth and tasty even straight. Little Pricey.
Very Smooth and satisfying its sweet but not over the top.
smoother and gentler than I expected and my wifes favorite out of the welcome box 3
Coming back for more!
Great, consistent bourbon. Nice spicy notes
Love the spice at the tail end, but a little sweeter then we wanted
Smooth, warm, quiet easy to drink
The honey and toasted notes made this blend and nice sipper. The vanilla came through perfectly and the finish was very smooth. Really like this and it got better with every sip.
Definitely on the sweet side. Not sure it would mix well for a Manhattan or Ild Fashioned. But, enjoyable for a tasting.
Drinks well neat. Balanced bite that fades with a flavorful vanilla
Solid bourbon - definitely taste the vanilla and honey, sweeter than my preference, but smooth.
Very smooth,a perfect drink to sit and sip in the evening...
Smoother than expected but a nice sweet aroma aftertaste. Good for a after dinner drink.
Enjoyed this from the intro tasting kit. Nice and smooth. Likely to be added to my cabinet as an “always around”.
Vanilla and oak notes, smooth drinking and lingering burn, loved it.
Pretty good. A little too sweet for my taste though
Loved it! One to sip and enjoy after work for sure!
On the sweeter side, good for an after dinner dessert
Simple but solid - caramel and vanilla on the nose and taste
Good flavor, but super sharp finish
Some notes of caramel. Smells like vanilla - very sweet smell. Strong afterburn. It is a weaker taste than smell. Buttery (with water) - like a thick dessert, a pound cake.
So smooth and still full flavored.
A bit too sweet for my taste, but smooth.
Very smooth. Slight hint of honey on the back end. One of my favorites
Smooth and delicious.
Love this Bourbon. My lovely wife is a Jack Daniels fan and she prefers this over Jack!
I was pleasantly surprised. It has slight honey smell with wood undertones .Didn't taste any lamb,thank goodness.
Smooth finish, honey in the front
Good but a bit spicy.
The fresh banana and vanilla is unmistakable and pleasant. Tried this bourbon neat and with a 1/.5 splash of room temperature water, allowing it to open up a bit. Was enjoyable either way. Smooth and with minimal bite on the back-end.
Really good bourbon and wouldn't mind added a bottle to the home bar, one bit.
Smooth. Great finish.
Good stuff. Smooth and sweet
This was delicious, a solid 7. A hint of sweetness with just a little bite. I don't know that I'd run out just to pick up a bottle but I definitely wouldn't be embarrassed to have it in my home bar.
Great. Loved the note of honey.
very smooth with hint of sweetness.
This was okay. Not bad but I have had better bourbons. Sorry, I live in Tennessee and good bourbons are common here. This is okay but I would not be a go to for me.
A delicious little treat! Sweet smell of honey and banana, but it doesn't taste overly sweet like the Crown Royal gimmicks.
Soft caramel and chocolate on the nose. Smooth and luscious in the mouth. The caramel lingered on the finish.
Great bourbon, I've had a few CO whiskeys. Really enjoyed this one. First thing to come to my mind when I tasted was the vanilla and honey. Smooth and not overly sweet.
Very smooth finish. Smokey taste.
First thing I tried out of the welcome box! Smooth, sweet at first spicy as it rolls off your tongue. Damn good bourbon.
My first tasting kit so I was a little impatient. Cracked open vial and stuck it right to my nose. First scent was strong alcohol and small sip was bitey on tongue (I should know better that to be in a rush). After I reigned it in and let it breath for a few minutes it was delightfully smooth and sweet.
Good Bourbon, finishes well
Reasonably smooth, easy to drink. A nice intro to the welcome box.
Loved this was very smooth with a great taste!! Good to pour a few fingers sit back and relax.
like candy smooth yet complex first sip no spice and gets warmer in your mouth with sweet notes of cream/icing and finishes with you having a big smile on your face
Like it a lot, notes heavy vanilla with honey sweetness
Good Bourbon, finishes well
This one has a spicy bite which is not my cup of tea. Reminds me of red hots.
Light rye spiciness
This bottle would pair well when smoking a cigar on a patio in the cold winter of the Colorado Rockies. The bite and proof come through strong so if you're a fan of Scotch with complexity and bite this could be more up your alley. The overall spiciness was too much for me but your mileage may vary.
This was good, could tast the banana will probably add a bottle to my bar.
Solid whiskey, clean finish. At the beginning the honey is dominate, and you catch a little cherry at the end.
A little too sweet for my taste.
Honey and cherry over the palate, very spicy finish. Bit too much so for me
Reads clumsy, with lots of naked alcohol and not as much complexity as I'd hoped.
Very nice flavor , especially the spice notes. Might be my favor so far.
Really good. Really smooth.
I new to rating bottles and may not have a complex palate so my systems is the following
1-2 stars give away or re-gift
3-5 keep-out front for avg drinker & relatives
6--8 share with a friend
9-10 Keep your grubby hands off
this was a solid 9 for me.
Very smooth taste, has a little burn on the end, but overall a very good bourbon.
Fruity, some vanilla, and a little alcohol burn. Not bad, I’d consider having a bottle around once in a while.
Pretty good stuff. I wish the tasting sample would have been much bigger. I'm definitely getting a bottle of this.
Complex with roasted malt and vanilla. A bit hot but good to taste this one again
Very spicy if you let it sit for long. Tried neat and it was pretty good, but slightly overwhelming.
I am new to the tasting and review thing, so, I based my value on couple things 1 st would I give as gift to get ride of, 2nd would recommend, 3rd would I share with a buddy, 4th keep your damn hands off! This for me is close to keep your damn hands off !
Strong. Just a tad sweet but strength overpowers that
Fairly smooth with a burn at the end. The oak and rye definitely come through
It smelled sweeter than what came across, less flavor came through and it was a strong alcoholic taste compared to others
It's a great bourbon
Great taste of vanilla and oak. Finished well with a slight burn
A bit harsh at first, but with a splash of water the flavors revealed.
Solid but not amazing
Good flavor not to rough
Love the smell and initial taste. Strong roasted taste.
I've had this bourbon many times and it never disappoint. The toasted honey flavor up front is pleasant with a smooth alcohol burn on the finish. Solid, sweet, bourbon.
I got a cinnamon note off of it. I’m not a fan of cinnamon so not for me.
Great bourbon. Will be adding this to my bar.
Very smooth and drinkable, but lacked in spice and flavor.
A good bourbon for the price. Still trying other labels, but I could see this in my bar in the future.
Came in my tasting box starter pack. Quite good, meets expectations of what a bourbon should be.
First time trying and loved it. Had it again at a local farm to table dinner event that included a whiskey pairing with this being one of them. Very smooth. Great for summer and definitely want to add this to my whiskey collection.
Notes of honey, smokey and definitely tasted the banana. Not my go to, but worth the occasional tast.
Pretty good. Comfortable and smooth with Hints of floral and citrus
Good but not great
This is my go to bourbon
A good drinking whiskey, lacking that special punch.
I felt the banana notes were overwhelming. Overall a bourbon I would not turn away!
For the price there's not many complex whiskeys like this one. Good start and notes of maple syrup and vanilla lend way to a smooth finish. Like a good woman it leaves you wanting more and when it's gone you quickly look for another. One I'll come back to for sure.
A fair product, but not something I would buy a bottle of.
Started nicely but fell off although not drastically. Subtle strong sides and sweet enough to make me smile. Not too sweet though. Probably wouldn't order it myself but wouldn't turn it down if offered.
on the nose caramel, cocoa, smoky, sweet, On the palate harsh burn cocoa, caramel, bread, long finish warming it not favorite
Great flavor. One of my favorites so far
Very smooth. With a rich after taste.
Amazingly smooth with a great flavor profile
Very smooth. Good gateway.
Best neat. Easy sipper with ice
Okay, but not for the price.
About the same as all bourbons, just had more burn going down than I’m used to.
I first tried neat, then with a splash of water, then mixed with Coke. This is a good tasting bourbon, but not really distinguishable from most of the other mid level bourbons out there. Nothing really stood out.
Smooth. Little sweet nice finish on the spice. Can't taste the banana it claims but the toasted honey is there.
Honey, vanilla, roasty
Nice sweetness but sharp bite.
Too much of a bite for me
I enjoyed this bourbon. It had just the right amount of sweetness.
Very impressive, for a bourbon. Not too sweet, not too punchy. Strong banana notes, which I enjoyed.
Harsh. Very spicy.
Too much honey
Really enjoyed this bourbon. Smooth smoky finish.
Honey, honey, honey! It was almost too sweet for me. Honey on the nose and almost overwhelming on the palette. The Vanilla came through but that was it for me. More chest feel than the other two in this box maybe from the spice, not high on my bourbon list as I prefer them a little less sweet.
Thoroughly enjoyed this one. Smooth with an easy finish.
Very smooth, good hint of honey, good drinking summer bourbon
Good nose, taste is spicy and lingers, long legs, golden/lemon color.
The spicy notes overwhelmed the honey/vanilla flavor.
Smooth carmel but spicy ending
This is a fantastic high rye bourbon! The mash bill lends a lot of character and spice. If you enjoy high rye bourbons, or find most bourbons boring, this one should change your mind.
Very Smokey, it could be a little overwhelming, but good.
What a great bourbon!
This bourbon lacks body & flavor. It’s not even a nice neat sipping bourbon
A fine example of bourbon. Nothing that blew me away, but something I could easily sip on throughout an evening.
Solid, entry-level Bourbon at a good price point. A bit spicy when drinking neat, and the best flavors get a little lost when drinking with a cube, but a good bourbon regardless.
good bourbon. loved the smooth finish. would definitely buy.
Good but had a bite that needed a bit of water
Least preferred of samples but solid. Unlikely to buy.
Flaviar has opened new doors for me, and this sample was a hit. Smooth, yet had some bite. All you need is some rocks to accent this bottle.
Immediate honey and banana on the palate neat, followed by a subtle spiciness. Chilled, the spice diminishes and flavors blend better.
This was pretty good. It's got a heckuva spice, but I dig it. Great flavor and aftertaste.
This I like.. You can really taste the banana and the vanilla notes and there is a nice spiey nip to it. The spice is not too strong and finishes smoothly. the honey tones add the perfect sweetness to it. The nose does detect the smokeness but it doesn't translate too strongly into the flavor. I will definitely purchase more of this....
Ultra solid bourbon from Colorado. It’s a go to for me in Wyoming where selection and variety is often limited. Very drinkable with a delicious flavor profile.
Good and strong with smooth after taste
Smooth, pleasant flavor
A fine bourbon, spicer than I anticipated. I did like the honey, and banana bread notes I got on the nose but I wasn’t all that thrilled with the taste. Not saying it wasn’t good, perhaps I just expected something different. I wouldn’t not hesitate to poor this for a friend and be confident they would enjoy it.
Best of the bunch
I enjoyed this Bourbon. Full of flavor with a subtle sweetness. Smooth, warm and delicious. This could be a future purchase for my bar at home.
I saw honey and toasted on the flavor profile. I didn't taste the honey much, but toasted absolutely.
Complex yet smooth. Closest thing to heaven in a bottle that I have found.
I have never particularly cared for Bourbon. I have always been more of a fan of the single malt scotch. That being said this bourbon is fantastic. delicious to the last drop. It sits on the tongue and the flavor spiral takes you on a beautiful ride of sweet vanilla all the way to oak heaven. I will be keeping a bottle of this at the bar at all times.
Very good Bourbon! It has a very strong sweet aroma, and the flavor matches. Syrupy and thick, but it was a good blend of molasses, maple, and brown sugar sweetness complimented by subtle oakiness, pure vanilla bean, and a hint of apple. It has a bit of a strong burn on initial taste, as the whiskey flows over the tip of the tongue. But that mellows out quickly.
Vanilla and spice in the nose with a strong honey taste. I got a very small bit of vanilla but more of the toasted and fruit notes towards the end. With a little bit of water the fruit becomes much more prominent in the nose and the honey is mixed with a subtle banana flavor, the toasted notes become more subdued. The more you drink the more the peppery flavor becomes apparent. All in all a very good bourbon.
Hands down my favorite bourbon. Smooth and complex with a velvet finish.
Nice honey flavor with slightly spicy finish. Going to buy a bottle to fully appreciate this bourbon with a good cigar.
I would buy it in the actual bottle in a heartbeat and it doesn’t need a chaser.
This was my first spirit in the box that I tasted; it was sweet to me at first then I started tashing the subtle spice.
I found this to be very spicy. I expected a smoother finish based on other reviews and the flavor spiral
Decent bourbon. Nice character.
Breckenridge is the Best Bourbon I have had in a while! It is smooth and the soft sweet vanilla and cinnamon is just lustfully delicious.
Good not great- better in cocktails than on its own Doubt I will but this again
Really nice finish, however not extraordinary. Comparable to Bulleit Bourbon which I really enjoy but this is at a higher price point.
I loved it! Easy to sip, had a lot of complexity but still very smooth. I’m definately adding it to my bar. It was my favorite of all the three testers.
Slightly spicy nose, it starts off spicy but finishes with very sweet notes of vanilla and cinnamon sugar. As it sits on your tongue it grows in sweetness
Yummy! Had good bite and good flavor.
I enjoyed the vanilla, honey and light oak undertones of this bourbon. I've had bourbons I like more, but I would definitely keep this in my bar for mixing. It's nice and smooth.
Solid, yet not extraordinary. I'd drink it again, but there are others worth moving on to.
I was lured in by the “awards” so I was disappointed. Just ok. Might be worth it at lower price point. Much better options out there for $50-60
Kind of plain, not as complex as I would like. Too smooth.
Toffee and vanilla on the nose. A little spice on the finish— which is smooth. I’ve been wanting to try this for a while. Quite happy with it.
Enjoyed this! Nice notes of fruit and an easy sipper.
Light honey/caramel sweetness with a very smooth finish.
The honey and toasted combo is a real treat and something unique. The nose is kinda common but the finish is really excellent.
Smooth and easy, definitely would have again.
Very smooth and enjoyable. I would buy.
I enjoyed the smooth sweetness of the initial taste. Has an easy finish, not to strong at the finish. I have a bottle in my bar right now.
This is definitely in my personal top ten bourbons. It has a nice bite, but a very nice finish.
Came with my welcome kit and I really enjoyed this. Very smooth and rich.
This was one of my first samples and I fell in love with it! Very smooth with a hint of honey makes this a great unwinder after a days work!
Been wanting to try this so I was excited that it was part of my welcome pack.
Toffee, caramel, vanilla, bourbon sweet and rye on the nose. Palate of stewed fruit, creme brûlée, sweet, oak, rye or toasted bread. Medium finish of mild spice oaky vanilla.
There are better bourbons out there but they are hard to come by. Terrific bourbon overall. I can see why it won gold at the 2011 Wine and Spirits International Competition.
I have this in my bar currently. While not the very top of my go-to list, it's certainly not anything to turn my nose up to. I just happen to have other bourbons that I prefer of this.
A lot of flavor. A lot of bite to it. Strong banana notes are fun.
Smooth is an understatement, but it still has plenty of bite to leave you satisfied.
First time that we tired this very smooth.
Smooth with great flavor. Will always keep a bottle of this in my bar.
Smooth like the favor get with my cigar and sitting around the fire pit. My people like it with there cigar really smooth going down for all of use.
All sweet and smooth and friendly. Tried Breckenridge several years ago and remember liking it, though I was early in my journey into Bourbon. This sample from the welcome box was a nice surprise and I immediately exclaimed "ooh...Honey! Vanilla! And...banana?" It was only about five minutes later that I grabbed the tasting notes card that came with it and saw Flaviar's notes, in order: Honey, vanilla and banana. Definitely enjoyed it the most of the three samples in the Welcome Box and would say it's a pleasant, easy sipper, as well as a decent bourbon to introduce to novice whisky drinkers.
Quite tasty, very smooth!
Nice, smooth,and flavorful. This would be a gateway to bourbon for rum drinkers. I prefer something a little more spicy. Add an ice cube or two, and it's dessert. Gimme Kentucky Straight.
Pretty good bourbon overall.
This came in the welcome box. A nice sipper with a cube of ice. It will likely be in my cart soon.
This came in my welcome box and was really not to my liking.
Loved the taster so much that I bottle a bottle! Go figure. ;-)
I enjoyed this one very much and was surprised by where this was made.. my home state. The honey and vanilla were very present to me with a nice spicey finish. I will definitely add this one tomy shelf!
I definitely enjoyed this one. It smelled intimidating and spicey. But it turned out to be a sweet flavor bomb of fruit and honey.
I liked this.
Small lingering bite but smooth.
Smooth flavor. Good for sipping.
Big on the honey and banana with a bit of vanilla, oak, and spice coming through as undertones. Very sweet, makes for an awesome dessert bourbon. This came in my Flaviar Welcome Box but I would gladly buy a full bottle.
It's a well known whiskey that can be found all over. It doesn't really stand out but it's by no means a bad whiskey.
Smooth, ton of flavor.
Very strong alcohol taste. Hated it!
I think this bourbon is a great value considering how well made it is. It has all the classic notes of a bourbon with the toasty, honeyed quality and a hint of vanilla. Mouthfeel is good considering its age and the finish is pleasant. There are many horrible bourbons out there and this one definitely isn't one of them. I can see myself picking up a bottle when I get that bourbon craving. It'll make an excellent gift for people who haven't been exposed to this brand as well.
Decent bourbon, would be good in a cocktail as the flavor is not strong. A good sipping bourbon if you like your bourbon on the smoother side
Flavor isn’t very deep. A little one note.
Very spicy but nice honey notes
Loved it. Rub it in.
Pretty close to perfect. Good to drink neat or as a mixer
Very strong and I couldn't finish the sample. No thanks
I thought this bourbon was smooth and had a smokey finish
This was my personal favorite uut of the welcome box the other where a bitch to harsh and gross tasting for my liking. Very smooth and tasty. I could drink this just on it's own.
my favorite out of the welcome box. slightly sweet but not too much, the roasted/toasted taste is great
The banana flavor was kinda cool.
Such a smooth and rich bourbon. Fantastic for when you need a good drink but want some easy enjoyment. Left me feeling warm and serene.
Love their beer....loving their bourbon! Smooth...buttery....fells like it would be great straight up.
I'm a big fan of Jack Daniel's and this reminds me of Jack. I'd say it's like a Jack for those who like to have a drink with loved ones.
As syrupy a bourbon as I can remember. A fine dessert to fall into
The honey and banana notes are very prevalent. It's definitely enjoyable, but the spice bite is a bit too much for me and the mouthfeel is a bit off. Not my favorite bourbon, but worth picking up in a sample box to try for your self!
This is a solid CO bourbon
Nothing particularly awesome. Not bad, but I’ve had better; I wouldn’t purchase it. Mouthfeel almost seemed thin, and the spicy burn was a bit overpowering.
The flavor of the sample was great so I ordered a bottle. It arrived and it has a lot of floating sediment in the bottle. Some pretty large so will not be drinking it. Unfortunate. And gross.
Not really a bourbon - not from KY and it is a blend of bourbons. Doesn't stand up to a good KY bourbon. Not for me.
I first tried the Breckenridge in my sample box and have already purchased a bottle through flaviar.
I hope I don't like the rest as much, or I'm in trouble!😎
Not a great whisky. I'm more a fan of Maker's Mark, Woodford Reserve, Knob Creek, heck, even Buffalo Trace. This example was quite harsh. Perhaps with 10 years of aging it could be drinkable without a mixer.
You can really taste the honey and vanilla (?) in this one. Tasty and digging the sweetness.
Overall, very good flavored bourbon with exceptional smootheness given its price point. Well worth your time and treasure. Do yourself a favor and buy a bottle today.
Smooth and flavor
Nice a mellow and I’m really digging the banana and vanilla after notes
I really only liked the bourbon. The rye just didn't do it at all and the other one just taste like medical supplies or something it was terrible. The bourbon though was really good, I would actually buy a bottle of that.
Danger that was for the welcome box review.
Ok. But I bit too much heat with the spice for my liking
A little honey and vanilla to start but too much spice at the end
I really like this slight bite on this one. One of my go to bottles.
A typical bourbon, I enjoyed the smoky flavor.
Harsh after bite, smell the alcohol, definitely needs a mixer
Nicely smooth,nothing extraordinary great for sipping
This whiskey just didn't have enough flavor for me, it was a lot of boozy taste but not much else.
Nice amber color with smells of sweetness and vanilla. The taste was a little sharp at first, with some smokiness. Smoother at the end. It was an OK bourbon overall, but probably won’t buy it.
Great tasting bourbon! Sweet and spice.
Extremely smooth, with sweet honey notes. Great sipping bourbon!
Decent mid-range American bourbon but nothing special
Agree with smoth and easy drinking. Not overdone, mild spice.
I thought this had a good finish. Could really taste the honey at the end.
I've had this bourbon before and really enjoyed it. Tasting it blind confirmed that it is a good drink to sit at home and sip. I enjoyed it very much. The flavor profile is spot on. I got a lot of spice on the initial taste and it quickly went to a caramel and pepper finish. I will definitely keep this in my home bar.
Loved it! I thought it had a great aroma and taste!
I really debated giving this 7 stars... I went with 6 because the more I drank it, the less I liked it.
Neat: It started with a strong yet slightly sweet flavor and a thick, not quite syrupy, mouth feel which finished with a spiced char that kind of lingered. It was that lingering finish that started to overtake the initial caramel, vanilla sweetness.
Rocks: the ice initially killed the burn, but then I felt like the flavor profile flattened out.
It was better than average, even good, but not great.
Sweet and with a definite spice to it
Very smooth, easy to drink. Nice finish. Was hoping for a little richer/bolder taste. But, very nice bourbon.
pretty smooth, simple bourbon, quick finish. my initial thought is that this may be a good option for those that prefer Woodford. I feel that it could use a few more years in the barrel.
My favorite by far at the moment. Love the honey taste. Very smooth finish as well. Not as strong as some other bourbons but very delicious.
Breckenridge was fantastic! Buying a bottle and is likely to become my go drink.
I liken Breckenridge to a less intense Woodford Reserve - it’s smooth and tasty but not as bold. The first dram I had upon opening the bottle tasted rather harsh and thin-tasting with a finish that lagged. However, 24 hours later, it was tastier and smoother, though still starting harsh, with a much better finish. If you like strong, bold whiskeys, this could disappoint. Otherwise, it’s not bad at all.
Breckenridge Bourbon has very approachable aromatics, which are heavily laced with fruit and vanilla. Although the nose is inviting, the flavor leaves much to be desired. This bourbon is sweet and smooth, but I wouldn't pour it for my guests nor want them to pour it for me. It's boring.
Stronger than I expected. Taste was a little harsh at first but got slightly better the further I tasted.
This was my gateway bourbon. It remains my #1 go to drink. Smooth, vanilla, just the right amount of sweet. Perfect.
Great sweetness from start to finish. Really smooth.
Warm and caramel - easy to pick up. Got smoother as I went on...
Silky smooth. Warm wood and caramel notes. I will be looking for this at the next bar.
Nice and smooth once it opens up. Lots of caramel on the nose. Great legs.
Very good, would consider buying a bottle.
Really good smell and easy to drink. A little bite at the end but a really tasty drink overall.
Very nice! So very smooth. I loved it.
Very smooth and tasty. Excellent flavor and a great end of the day spirit.
As smooth as anything I have ever tasted. No bite not overbearing aroma and very good taste straight up. A definite buy!
Really a good smooth bourbon.
One of the smoothest whisky's I have ever had. Can't wait to purchase a bottle of this.
Good flavor, can really taste the spicy notes.
Really enjoyed it!! Smooth, vanilla and spices, not too harsh
Excellent taste, followed the flavor spiral
Being from Colorado I was happy to pay homage to my old stomping ground. This has an exceptional taste if you tend toward a sweet Bourbon.
My all-time favorite bourbon is Henry McKenna. I started drinking it when it was sold in ceramic jugs. This is pretty good, but a little on the harsh side
Too toasted and roasted for my taste, but not all bad.
Finishes bitter, too much spice, and too much roast flavor for me.
Smooth and sweet with great honey notes. Liners briefly with a sweet spiciness at the finish.
Goes down smooth, then you get a pleasant alcohol warmth. Not to sweet. Good flavor.
Smooth and sweet. Nice to sip straight.
This was delicious.
Way too sweet, was like drinking some cheap bodiless whiskey from certain companies that shall not be named.
A perfect welcome to the vast world of fine spirits! I highly recommend adding to any home bar.
for bourbon it WAS GOOD
Not bad, not real flavorful.
Really enjoyed the mouthfeel. Very unique and pleasant, velvety and hints of minerals. Definitely taste the honey and sweetness but also the spice which gives it a nice balance, especially for me who usually prefers Rye. This felt like a bourbon with some Rye tendencies
Honey and fruit on the nose. Outstanding scent with a great flavor. Improves with each sip. Love this bourbon.
Smooth, mellow finish. Excellent vanilla and caramel notes. Definitely a must try. Their tasting room in Breckenridge Colorado is a great place to have a drink.
Have to spend a little time tasting and exploring the flavors then the honey notes and salted caramel comes out
Smooth. Like the vanilla and other flavor profiles.
Awesome bourbon smooth honey finish the flavors develop the more you try definitely a favourite
Sweet, and I liked it
Average. 2 dimensional
Flavor is good, a little strong
I am a fan of this bourbon. It can come off a bit sweet, but I feel it really edges out overall in a good way.
Fairly sweet, but not overly so. Quite enjoyable subtle woody flavor, and SMOOTH!
Straight forward bourbon. I thought there was a decent woody taste on first sip. couldn't find it again after the rye and scotch.
Awesome with a splash of ginger ale
Good flavor Nice and smooth
Nice flavor, a perfect drink for on the rocks
Nice and smooth but would still prefer Bulliet Bourbon as it has more flavor
Nice and smooth
Out of the three in the intro box, this was my favorite. Smooth, but a little on the sweet side. I don't taste a reason to purchase a bottle at this point, but will keep it as an option on my list.
This would make for an excellent mixer but it lacks complexity and is too sweet as a sipper. Problem is, it's price-point is too high for a mixer.
A little sweet
Pretty smooth and mild. Lots of flavors
I love the flavors in this bourbon! Very nice!
Very flavorful! Not your typical bourbon but in a surprisingly good way! Don't be afraid to try it.
I'm not much for bourbon but this one has me rethinking it. Smooth, sweet and one to consider if you're normally into Scotch.
When compared with the other items in my tasting box, Breckenridge was by far the most memorable. It is smooth and a little sweet, like honey. I promptly bought a whole bottle.
I never received the box. Why was it sent to Compton when i live in Chicago?
Very smooth finish and a great flavor
I grew up in Kentucky and bourbon was my drink for many years. I don't know why but over the last several decades my taste have change to where I prefer a good single malt scotch. not a bad bourbon but not my taste.
Very smooth with great flavor.
Cherry and honey hit first followed by a smooth sweet toasted note.
Extremely smooth with excellent flavor
Not good at all
Probably my new favorite! So smooth with two cubes
True to the flavor spiral and a solid craft bourbon.
Smooth, honey sweet, and a nice oak finish. Enjoyable neat or with a splash of water.
Strong honey flavor, very nice going down, strong after body
Nose - Offers an apple/apple pie.
Taste - Honey on the front, light sweet, notes of oak on the back.
Finish - Thin, flat, not long lasting.
Not a fan, but then again I don’t care for Bourbon
Sweet, smooth, very velvety. Strong honey taste.
Reasonable all around. Decent representation of the style
OK, but not my favorite. A little sharp, and can't taste the flavors referenced as much
Love it. Smooth finish
Not a bad bourbon but seemed a little young. It actually mellowed and was better with a little water.
Spice and honey with a hint of vanilla. There’s some banana in the aftertaste that stays for a while. It was good, maybe even good enough to stock some.
This is one the better bourbons that I have tasted, I will be buying a bottle!
Nice bourbon...could tastes the honey up front. A nice start to the welcome box
Not my favorite ever but enjoyed the taste.
Spicy forward. Banana comes after hold on mouth. Bit strong for my wife but she is troopering through it and opening up to it all. Good stuff.
You can really taste the honey on the front end and spices on the rear.
Smooth and sweet i thought it was pleasant definitely going to keep a bottle on hand
Came in my welcome box, but I already keep this around (it's "local" to me which I much appreciate) because I enjoy it so much. A really solid bourbon.
Love this one, very smooth taste. I don't use a mixer when I drink Bourbon or Whiskey and found this one sweet with a hint of spice. nicely done.
I thought this was far from smooth. I couldn't finish the sample. Tasted more like a scotch than a bourbon.
Nice smooth taste with a combination of spice and sweet.
A wonderfully smooth bourbon. I have no idea why, but there is definitely a banana note that sweetens and eases things along. The usual notes of vanilla are complemented by this that leads to a much quicker spice following and lingering without bite. I found the honey to linger on the tongue here. Nuts and molasses were definitely present in the aroma to me, which added overall.
A nice smooth bourbon. There are notes of vanilla and honey. The finish is quite nice and lingers nicely.
Nice combination of spice and sweet.
Excellent bourbon and can’t believe the price. Smooth with toasted honey notes.
Strong smell initially had me worried but ended up being very smooth. May have found my new favorite already!
Good smooth bourbon
Would definitely purchase this! Great overall flavor!
Sweet depth. Easy on the tongue and nose
Didnt get that welcome feeling with this. Words cant describe just how bad the so called scotch was. I cant remember the last time i poured my drink down the sink.
The Breckenridge Bourbon was a truly amazing & outstanding sample. The Few Rye was ok, smoother with a different twang spice kick than some other ryes I've had. The Kilchoman Machir Bay Scotch ruined the experience. Its peaty disgusting flavor lingered in your mouth for hours making this sample as a whole fail to impress. The highlights are that I will buy a bottle of Breckenridge, but hard pass on doing another blind taste test.
Wonderful fruity aroma and fairly smooth start. The finish was a bit too bitter and toasty.
Good daily drinker.
Good smooth bourbon. Nice enough to save or share
Pleasant aroma. Smooth in the mouth feel, but I was not a fan of the finish. The spicy notes were a bit strong for my tastes.
Smooth, enjoyable taste
Smooth and sweet, with really nice spicey notes. Goes down real easy. Be careful with this one!
Love that Colorado, my home state, has bourbon, my favorite booze! It’s very hot but it’s great
Good starting taste but ends with a little bite at the finish.
Not bad, but also not great. Went down smooth, but was sweet in the wrong way to me. Maybe more honey sweet than fruit sweet, but my palate isn't very refined so that's more just an opinion. Not planning on adding this to my rotation.
It was ok...
It's a nice bourbon, just not one of my favorites. Has a warm finish but not a smooth as I like in bourbon.
Full rounded flavor and smooth. It went down very easy. Very, very tasty. I plan to add this to my rotation.
I won’t buy it
I had tried Breckenridge about a year ago and quickly finished the bottle. However this second try was better than the first. It was spicy yet smooth and full of flavor. I'll be adding this to my stash!
Very good. Would buy more
Nice flavors, but a little harsh
Good, smooth but maybe to mild
Enjoyed it a great deal
It was not bad but i wouldn't say it was my favorite.
Just ok. Tasted better for cheaper.
This is a very smooth bourbon. Definitely one of the great sippers.
Not a bad bourbon but not great either. Had a bit of a bite going in, but a lack luster finish.
Great flavor, has a burn. I could drink this but I did not really enjoy it.
I enjoyed the time I had with my wiskey friends as we tasted all of the samples. I enjoyed Brekenrigde the best.
We enjoyed this one for sure.
Good taste. Better than Jack Daniels in my opinion. Not the cleanest finish, definitely lingers on the palate for a bit. Nice warm enjoyable feeling afterwards.
This was very delicious.
Smoother than Gentleman Jack, great taste. The best out of the box for sure, I would buy it!
Very nice & smooth bourbon. Not overly sweet, but still has a fair amount of heat…
Definitely enjoyable - not too light but not especially bold either. Hard to describe for me as I liked it the best of the three but can't say there was anything in particular that made it notable. More of an "every day drinker" than something to savor.
Pretty good stuff. Light taste, smooth with hint of sweetness. Not quite Buffalo Trace, but in the ballpark. Certainly worth further exploration.
My favorite from the welcome box with the spicy, roasted, and slight sweetness.
Definitely! A new favorite!
Best of the three in the welcome box, but I have had better.
Was OK, but wouldn't seek out over other bourbon.
I enjoyed it for my first bourbon.
I’m a beginner at tasting whiskeys but this was my favorite of the welcome box. I will likely try a bottle.
I enjoyed this. I am normally not a burbon guy but this is smooth, you can taste the honey and the spice.
I thought this was a solid bourbon, wouldn't necessarily be my "go to" bourbon, but as a mixer or an alternative to some of the more expensive ones I like it would be good to keep on hand.
Little too much of an aftertaste. Otherwise not too bad!
Enjoyed the sweetness and warmth of this bourbon. Will add to my home bar.
Very drinkable, was the best one out of the welcome box. My kind of Bourbon.
Really enjoyed this one. Solid flavor, not too much heat... Will be buying a bottle to keep around the house.
has the smokiness that I tend to prefer. Nice spicy finish. Will get a bottle soon
Smooth, can taste the sweetness and smoky flavor
Top notch, absolutely loved it, definitely making it a mainstay in the home bar.
Very good bourbon, I will be ordering a bottle of this
Oaky bourbon with a smooth finish; flavor is a little too understated for me
Solid everyday drinking Bourbon. The lower alcohol content really shows through with the finish.
I liked it. It was a good bourbon. Not the best I’ve ever had but I’d buy a bottle of this.
Sweet and fresh. Love this. Fruit notes are prominent
I am more of a scotch drinker but I liked this bourbon. good flavor and very smooth. I will tell my bourbon drinking friends to give it a try.
A bit too hash for my taste but I'm not a huge Bourbon fan.
Very smooth! A bit too sweet for my taste, but I wouldn't push it away if it was in my glass.
Liked the vanilla sweetness, disliked the toasted/roasted flavor bites. Awesome whiskey for the price point.
My husband and I had been wanting to taste Breckenridge for a while after hearing many good things, so we were excited to receive a sample in our welcome tasting box. Long story short, we were very impressed! The flavor is unlike any other bourbons we have tasted before - we are more Scotch people, but we enjoy a good bourbon as well. The flavors of vanilla and banana bread really stand out, and you get a bit of spiciness in the background. The honey and sweetness are there in just the right amount. Very easy drinking and goes down smooth. A kiss of water makes the flavors pop. We will be purchasing a bottle and are interested to see what else the Breckenridge line comes up with.
Outstanding flavour, easy on the palette. A must for any bourbon drinker.
Loved this. Goes down smooth without the hard kick. Enjoyed the smooth and spicy notes.
Not a huge bourbon fan. However, this is better than I expected. Sweet notes definitely stand out. The honey is noticeable. Better than your run of the mill bourbons.
Pretty decent. Good flavor. Best of the 3 samples
love the smooth and sweet finish
Preferred of the three samples. A little harsh on the finish but good flavor. Would try again.
It was smooth with tease of sweet. Not bad but a little boring.
Solid every day bourbon.
Very smooth from start to finish and not much of a burn. It has a pretty nice and light sweet taste, but overall its nothing that makes it stand out from other bourbons. Its nice to sip on, but not really memorable. This is my preferred from the welcome tasting box.
Strong at first sip, but smooth at the end. After the first drink I really enjoyed it.
Very nice bourbon, smooth with very little aftertaste. This and the rye in the sample box were both very good. The scotch on the other hand was not drinkable.
ok I guess. Not much of bourbon drinker.
Nice sweetness with a little burn at the finish. Good every day bourbon.
Pretty good flavor. Smoth tasting.
Loved it over ice. Not a great mixer at all.
Decent bourbon, but enjoyed the Rye in the sample box better!
Pretty tasty and sweet. Smooth and very easy to to drink
It was okay. Not going to be a favorite though.
Appeared to be spicey
A bit of a bite out the gate...not as smooth as others such as Woodford.
Nose- sweet honey, sweet corn
Taste- Honey all day, quick spicy note, soft grain undertones
Overall- tasty as an occasional treat, but a little too much honey in the taste for me
Got this one in the Welcome Box and I really enjoyed it. Not too sweet, I would order again.
The honey is definitely there but not overpowering. Best one out of the welcome box.
