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.
Very smooth, matches the described flavor pallet. A very nice smooth sipping Bourbon. Currently moved to top of my sipping whiskeys. My wife says this best Whiskey she has had. She doesn’t typically like Whiskey.
Awesome sipping bourbon with a local feeling.
Slightly sweet with a lovely banana undercurrent and a honey finish. Bitter notes are a bit too powerful.
It’s not offensive but not overly flavorful. Nothing special about it.
Slightly sweet and smooth. Vanilla, smoke, banana.
Loved the banana sent
Smooth. Easy to drink. Slight sweet taste of honey.
Red Color, Apricot nose, light and tastey
Love the roasted toasted taste but not too aggressive aftertaste. This is our favorite from taste box so far
Smooth, good flavor.
Solid but not aggressive flavor of corn with a bit of spice and sweetness.
Just tight amount of sweetness good after taste.
I would not even say drinkable...
Toasted honey...great smooth bourbon whiskey...tried the starter set and by far stood out among the rest. Will be buying a bottle shortly!
Drinkable, but nothing particularly special.
Love the vanilla / caramel on the nose. Decently smooth and delicious.
Smooth. On the sweeter side
Really smooth. Lots of caramel and vanilla.
This is my go to bourbon. I always try to have a bottle around the house. Super smooth with hints of butterscotch. If you ever get a chance to tour their distillery I would highly recommend it.
Great like it a lot. Very smooth
Honey and banana really come through. Vanilla is more subtle. Great full bodied taste with smooth finish.
Too much burn, better with ice or water.
Reminds me of Oban little bay. Very nice with a little bite form not being aged.
Relatively bland with some alcohol burn. The port cask from Breckinridge is my favorite so far. Initial sips are good but the finish isn’t for me. For the price there are other bourbons I would rather have.
Delicious! I will get this again as a sipper.
A solid bourbon whisky with great nose and palate. Not my favorite Breckenridge product as I've had almost all of them. For the price, Breckenridge Reserve is my favorite. This is a great choice however, and enjoyed tasting it again.
I thought that the Whiskey was a bit thin but has a great taste. It may be a tad overpriced but worth a shot at least once.
Quite drinkable. Not too complex. Great to drink with friends.
Unique spirit with notes of butterscotch and pineapple. Would purchase again. Too good to use in cocktail. Neat or with one rock.
Great flavor-best in welcome box!!
Great sipper and intro bourbon. Smooth and yummy.
Very smooth and liked the honey
Very sweet, smooth
Good taste. Kind of a "thin" texture.
Sweet smelling, smooth taste, a bit spicy - really delicious bourbon!
Very smooth! Velvety finish
It's my go-to for an evening drink. Sweet, but easygoing and a perfect night-cap.
Smooth, by far the best in the welcome box
Not a strong flavor but good mouth
Very smooth. Easy drinking
Smooth and a bit sweet.
Received our first Flavian box and this was one of the tasters, excellent. Smooth but not weak. Definitely will look for this in the future.
Had this bottle at a friend's ranch, we both enjoyed the bottle after dinner.
Us mellow with a smooth finsh
Breckenridge is probably younger, but it's very subtle on the nose. My amateur nose picks up honey, banana and little bread. I like it.
Nice sweet bourbon. Not particularly smooth.
A little oaky, a little sweet. Nothing special. Just as good bourbons out there for half the price.
at first it was easy and a little spice, but then if felt a bit too much like I was drinking something that was stored in cardboard...to much of a woody taste.
I WOULD ALSO SAY THIS IS A SMOOTH BOURBON. WAS MY FAVORITE OF INTRO TASTERS BOX.
My favorite selection from the Flaviar subscription, so far. This is a smooth bourbon with depth of flavor.
Only tasted roasted and spicy notes. Burned at the back of my throat. Didn’t taste sweet. Much better mixed with something else.
Caramel nose, tinned peaches and cinnamon
Palate, burnt sugar finish.
Got this whiskey on a recent trip to CO. Definitely enjoyed the flavor and would recommend to other.
Smooth but with a tough bite
Smooth and flavorful
Banana and bread in the nose, but I did not taste either very much. Good at first w vanilla and smooth notes, but a very spicy peppery taste immediately after swallowing. The finish/aftertaste was a negative for me.
Very mellow taste with strong notes of honey. Not my first pick for the price, but enjoyable.
This was good, but the banana taste in the flavor wheel dropped it down a star for me.
Easy to drink , smooth deep taste
Like very much, buttery sweet start with a spicy finish.
Smooth tasting. Sweet (not as sweet as Makers), but with a hint of smokiness.
Definitely smell the banana. The taste is very smooth with a sweet finish.
OK, but I like Breck's reserve blend more.
Pleasantly surprised with this
Enjoyed this taste. The spiral helped to depict the various flavors. Smooth and easy.
I don't think this is an inherently bad drink. Better to pair this with a lighter wrapper cigar (a connecticut wrapper).
Maybe even a citrus fruit. I do feel there was something artificial about this, which is why I don't think I'll be getting a bottle, but something I'll definitely consider gifting or consider looking at, again later.
I liked the spice and vanilla oak notes quite a bit.
I love the smell and the slight taste of honey.
Solid - I get pepper on the nose, honey on the taste, not a huge fan of the spicy finish.
I love honey but it was very faint. I still like it as I prefer the sweeter stuff. But as always doesn’t hold a candle to my regulars: 4 roses single, McCall an 12 sherry, grangestone 18. I got this as a taster with the membership and while I enjoyed it I won’t be putting it in my line up.
I didn’t enjoy it at first, but it grew on me. Strong upfront with a sweet finish.
Excellent bourbon. Sweet and delicious 😋!
Honey for sure and an artificial banana nose. Heavy corn like Hudson, not in a good way. First sip was better than the next.
Alcohol forward. A lot of honey, little bit of cherry in there. Not much else going on and definitely not worth the price.
Sweet forward. Complex flavor. Found myself thinking tropical and a waft of banana and coconut. It was weird. Spice lingers which changes it. As smooth as it was it finishes a little syrupy. But interesting and flavorful. If you want to veer off traditional bourbon give this a try.
Super smooth. Sweet. Not much bite.
My first bourbon. Cherry, hickory, and vanilla aromas. A bit harsh and spicy with a sweet aftertaste. A nice lingering warmth.
Nice bourbon. Strong scent of honey with hints of cherry and vanilla. I would drink this again
This is alcohol forward without much flavor. Harsh on the pallet.
Greatly enjoyed this one. Had a very sweet flavor and went down easy. Will definitely be trying again.
Smooth throughout. Rich aftertaste.
Nice warm you up on cold winter's night.
I enjoyed this bourbon. The initial notes are sweet, and I didn't think I was going to enjoy it, but there is a spicy kick at the end that rounds it all out. Bourbon is not my #1 go to spirit, but this was a pleasant surprise.
Enjoyed this bourbon. Honey scented for sure, notes of vanilla and a bit of maple. Smooth, a touch spicy but not overbearing. Touch of honey/vanilla on the tongue. Not overly complex, may not keep my interest long. Worth exploring some more.
Wasn’t enthusiastic about it. Seemed bitter and more like a rye.
banana and ash on the nose, ash and honey with a bit of leather for the taste and a peppery finish that lingers for a very long time.
It's OK, just not my thing
Nice aroma with a spicy kick at the end. When I think of bourbons, I think dark color, toffee and caramel. This is not one of them, so not one I would seek out if you’re after a classic bourbon.
I smelled banana bread on the nose, had a mild spice at the beginning but then had a slight vanilla sweetness to finish softly.
Smooth and flavorful
rough on the nose. no flavor
Nice mix of sweet and spicy. Didn't lose the spiciness, even with a couple drops of water. Smooth
Great nose, lots of spice on the front side. Don’t feel like the flavor carries past the spice.
Understated flavor. I tend to enjoy bolder flavors.
Smooth with a strong honey flavor and a spicy finish. Good aroma.
No distinction of flavors. A bit complex on the pallet, however enjoyable with one cube of ice and a cigar. I would buy it in the store.
The nose was very mild, and the taste was soft and subtle. I prefer a little bit bolder bourbon than this offered at this time.
Very smooth, lacking flavor
Very hot. Got toast and spicy notes
Solid bourbon. Sweet and smooth.
Solid Bourbon, nothing crazy.
Very nice & easy to sip. Sweet with a bite at the end
Light and sweet. It is pretty average in my opinion but certainly a good flavor. Not for those that want a lot of depth but instead just flavor.
I would score a 10 for the pleasant nose, 7 for smooth opening and mouth feel but have to drop down to a 5 on the finish. I think on the rocks would mellow the finish problem out but gonna average out to a 7.333. Going with 7
I pick up a lot of roasted noted with a subtle dark cherry. Finish is very long with spice and heat. A splash of water brought out the honey and slightly sweet notes.
Yes! I tasted the honey for sure! Then roasted bread and finally vanilla. Very good drink!
This was a little honey heavy for me, but the mouth feel and the smell were great. For me the honey overpowered the other flavors and was too sweet for my taste.
Pleasant nose, nice smooth opening with just the right amount of spice at the end. A perfect starter bottle for someone trying to get into bourbon, but also good enough for a seasoned drinker.
I was gonna give an 8.5 but can't, so I gotta go 9 but no problem with that. This was my first box and my favorite of the 3. Sweet honey and a slight banana taste the toasted sensation was new and went down nice. Very easy and no after burn.
Great nose. Very mellow through the entire experience. A whiskey I would suggest to someone that is not sure if they like whiskey or not.
Smooth for the price. Nice finish of vanilla
Goes down easy, enjoyed more on the rocks. Sweet taste, not sure what to make of the 'roasted' sensation. Would drink again but probably wouldn't go out of my way
We love the full bodied spicy mouthfeel. Smells of sweet honey and banana, but the flavors are very dry and the finish goes on and on.
Awesome!! Great flavor. Going on my bar!!
As part of the welcome box. Really enjoyed this one. For sure will look to pick it up.
A personal favorite.
This was smooth with delightful flavors. Hints of fruits and a touch of sweet. I enjoyed it.
Smooth and flavorful but still light
Honey on toast. Some fruit, but a nice rye bite to it. Less vanilla/caramel than most bourbons, but the high-rye whiskey blended in keeps this from being too sweet. A great sipper!
Very smooth. Easy drinking. I plan on using this in an old fashioned.
Lacking some depth and complexity. Very mild flavor.
Enjoyed the honey/ vanilla and oakey finish
very sweet, lots of honey.
smells like bananas.
It's a very good bourbon. It definitely has a more "smoky" taste/flavor. It's better in drinks that are not heavily mixed as you don't get that distinct flavor - best when used "neat" or in something like an old-fashioned.
Flavor was very good
One of my favorites. Smooth all around.
Suede feel with banana essence finish
Smooth, sweet, and tasty
Smooth and light. Good flavor profile.
Smooth with a nice sweet finish.
Smooth & sweet
Very smooth, nice complexity. One of my favorites. Personally I think it stands above some of the other standard choices around this price range.
Nice sweet flavor!! Enjoyed it!
It was very smooth and had some sweet notes
Surprisingly smooth finish. Good flavor all around.
Approachable, not too hot on the tongue, smoky and finishes smooth!
Love this - easy to drink & love the taste!
Very good...toasty and spicy
Sweet and woody
Good. A little too sweet for me. But good intro Bourbon
The further I get through the bottle the less I like it. Tastes to me more or less like Old Tub, which is half the cost. I've had bottle open for 2 months now, and it's about half gone. Never my first pour. I agree with flavor spiral, I get the maple, banana, toasted flavors. The finish is mostly heavy toast. I bought it bc my daughter had bought me some other Colorado bourbon (Woody Creek) that I love, so I thought I'd give this stuff a try. Wish I could say I like this more. Not bad but I'd rather have WT 101, which is half the cost and twice as good.
Very smooth and honey-forward with a sweet vanilla finish with bite. I really enjoyed this bourbon and my wife and I think this will be a permanent bourbon in our bar.
Very smooth. Smells like honey with taste of honey as well. Preferred neat.
Surprised by the spice at first, finishes sweet
Rich flavor with a sweeter finish than I had expected. Super smooth and easy drinking. Definitely a quality staple bottle to have for any occasion.
Spicy at first until the ice melts and it becomes delicious.
The bottle I have is actually called "Powder Hound," which is not listed in Flaviar's database. Possibly a limited edition? I'm going through my bottle slowly because I don't know if I'll be able to get more.
Anyway, it's a very easy sipping bourbon, mellow and dark with a bright citrusy tinge.
Smooth and warm finish, will drink again
Expect more from a $40 plus bottle of bourbon but I would recommend this to a beginner
Came off initially very spicy but then a smooth oak. Very enjoyable
Breckenridge is a great whiskey for those who enjoy the sweetness of bourbon with a slight cinnamon, peppery kick on the back end. It's not an overwhelming kick; it's enough to enjoy.
Nice honey colored, good mouth feel without burning. At first spicy on the swallow but the finish is pleasant and lingering.
Not bad. I had high hopes for this that it almost filled. Spicy, which I like, but almost too much. The spice seemed to overpower the other flavors. I tried it neat. Would be better mixed or perhaps with a single rock.
The best bourbon to ever grace my lips
Smooth, nice burn
Smooth with a nice soothing burn
Very good grit and after taste.
Smooth with good aroma straight. Mixes EXTREMELY WELL with literally anything.
Very smooth with quite a bit of flavor.
Very smooth. Sweet with a small bit of spice.
My second fav of the sampler. Strong but a bit of water brings out flavor
Pretty good, like Jameson's better
The sweetness along with the spice.
It’s pretty descent sipping bourbon silently sweet, rum like with some spice and slight Vanilla taste.
Love it!! Very nice Oak flavor. Very smooth and easy sipper. I will surely keep it in my bar
Oak notes on the front with simple flavors.
It was good. I’d give it a 6.5 if I could. Spicier than sweet. I would not keep it in stock, but I do not mind it in my bar. Curious about the rum cask finish.
Good spice notes....heavy Rye content I would buy it.
I like this. Very smooth and a little sweet while still being a real whiskey.
Did not enjoy. Not very complex...very thin
A little spicy like a rye. Very nice.
Fruity. A bit grassy in the finish. Very little bite. Very light in the nose, too. Not as leggy as some I've had; made it seem a little thin.
Spicy with some heat for a first taste. If you like rye, you will like this bourbon with high rye content. Very good sipping bourbon. First taste will surprise you for bourbon.
Not as complex or as well balanced as I would have hoped for. More sweet and not as warming.
Love this one. The bite is a little abrasive, but love the nose.
Nice smooth taste
Nice toasted scent with a touch of banana on the nose. More of a roasted/bread type of flavor on the taste with a spicy kick.
Love everything about Breckenridge...the town, the area, and now the Bourbon Whiskey. It is smooth, and has that warm Whiskey feeling. Smoky and Casky...sippin' for sure. What I thought was some Caramel in the background ended up being a Sweet Honey on the second sip. Definitely a big add to anyone's cabinet
Notes of vanilla flavored Tobacco and smooth sweetness came through excellently.
I like the extra smoky flavor but the pepper comes in oddly. Otherwise smooth, does well with a little water to lighten up the oils. Great fireside whiskey.
Loved the smoky taste. Pleasant in the mouth & goes down warm.
I've enjoyed all the Breckenridge & will order it again.
I loved a bottle of another Colorado bourbon my daughter got me (Woody Creek) so I was eager to try the Breckenridge. So far, mixed feelings that track the mixed reviews I've seen here and online. Lots of corn and honey. Kind of thin on the palette. A bit of an off finish. But I just uncorked last night. Maybe it'll open up some in the days to come, so I might revisit.
I recently told Flaviar they need to partner up with Woody Creek! I tried the bourbon and rye at an SCI convention and fell in love with the bourbon. Good to know this, since I was also looking into this bottle because of Woody Creek. The rum cask finish sounds good. might try that instead.
A really nice combination of sweetness and spice. Not usually a Burbon drinkerk, but this is one to add to the bar.
Good bourbon, just lots of others at better prices
Wish I could give an 8.5, very smooth and nice bourbon.
Smooth and flavorful. Sweet and not Spicy
One of the best bourbon's I've had. Sweet and warm, the finish truly does have a distinct lingering vanilla taste.
Really strong on the vanilla and sweetness
Good flavor, but too simple
Fairly smooth which I like.. a nice bourbon.
Hard bite, smooth after taste overall good whiskey
Very good taste and the best of the 3 tasters in the first box.
I enjoyed this one. I appreciate a sweeter bourbon that’s smokiness doesn’t overpower the other flavors
Sweet, but nothing that stands out
love this whiskey. i want more varieties of it - cask/cherry/select!!
Smooth feel, sweet, pleasant on the rocks or straight!
Smooth, subtle flavor when chilled/ on the rocks. Easy drinker, good neat or however you prefer it.
Easy drinking. Easy on the nose. Found the flavor mellowed on the rocks. Toasty flavor, slight spicy but very quick. Didn’t get as much sweetness as the flavor wheel mentioned
This is my favorite bourbon. After first tasting it in a tasting box, I had to order a a bottle... And then another... It has been some time since my discovery but a late review is better than no review. It has the best flavor that I have discovered in a bourbon so far and I don't feel the need to continue exploring in search of "the one". It is silky and coats your mouth effortlessly and all the classic bourbon flavors are profound yet smooth, the flavor is heavy but it feels light on the tongue. Its sweetness is only in the deep flavor notes but easily noticed, interesting to me that it had no burn and the initial bite is only enough to enhance the senses of your taste buds. The only flaw is the relatively low abv but that's ok, that's why there is wild turkey. I'm typically drawn to high abv and heavy burn and bite, I love it but this whiskey is worth your time and made me a believer in low proof whiskey.
Very, very nice and smooth!
Strong burn and light flavor. Okay, but nothing great.
Great Flavor and Finish. I'd recommend it.
Honey and candied fruit on the nose, and sugar cookies. Very smooth on the pallet...and maybe I'm having a stroke but did I smell/taste a hint of celery in a Bloody Mary right before it hit my lips!? Not a ton of flavor on the backend but smooth enough that somebody just getting into whiskey would probably like it.
A nice upgrade to Makers, but just a fairly simple sweet drink, good for mixing.
Light to drink, soft flavor to not be overpowering. Definitely a favorite.
Really like the initial taste but think I like the Few Rye a bit better.
Very enjoyable. Nice flavors that compliment each other well.
The perfect after dinner dessert bourbon. I added a whiskey cherry and ... yummy.
Not a huge fan, tasted like Jack Daniel’s
It’s solid...spicy and light. A good everyday whiskey.
Love the sweet honey forward flavor and nice kick of spice on the back end
Loved it! Definitely a new favorite. Would buy again.
Not bad. Can taste the honey. I like the the lingering spice at the end.
High quality. First tasted in the US embassy in Nairobi. Been a fan ever since
Maybe the smoothest bourbon I've ever had, but the flavor wasn't particularly distinctive from other good brands.
Tasting this bourbon does make me very interested to try their vodka and gin, however.
Soft nose turns to citrus and pine with a dribble of water. Vanilla and honey notes with a pepper finish. A very good whiskey. Full bodied and smooth.
It was. Very enjoyable. I didn’t catch much in the nose and in the pallet it felt thin in texture. However, the flavor was good and sweet. I got notes of vanilla and banana. The alcohol was very mild and easy to drink. It went down really easy.
Smooth with no after taste
Really good affordable bourbon!
Leans sweet. Pleasant to sip, but not overly interesting.
Good bourbon. Not a Kentucky bourbon but decent.
Nice smooth drink pleasant all the way. Vanilla and honey seemed to be the strongest flavors. Ideally I would it would have something smoky or darker hints of chocolate to balance this fine taste.
The flavor explores in the mouth & has a lasting after taste. Quite pleasant & will order it again
Light and smooth. Sweet finish
Love the taste going to buy a bottle thank you for the experience
Decent average bourbon. Tried it in my welcome box. There are a lot of better bourbons for sipping or mixing that cost much less than the $44 a bottle.
Very good bourbon.
A bit better than ok
Still new to this but this is the best of what I’ve tried so far. Sipped neat I was Able to pick out the complexities and it’s better than what I was drinking before.
Very smooth with just a bit of a smoky afterbite. The lingering aroma afterwards was a pleasant experience.
Nice. Just enough sweet to satisfy as it eases on down.
This was a lightweight. Smooth, but nothing really stood out or wowed mr.
Really nice for a blend. Added couple drops of water. Had a nice balance between sweet and spice. Smooth dram.
My fave of the welcome box. Very complex. Beautiful flavor combo
First sip was better than the last but I thought it was just ok
A real shocker, given it has no age statement and it's a blend. A good argument for the modern trend of blended whiskeys. Everyone I shared this with was equally surprised at how approachable it was without being "soft". Potent without being off-putting
Banana nut muffin
Very spicy, overrides the other flavors. With small amount of water added, the spice is pushed back allowing some of the other flavors to come forward
I am a fan of Breck. Nice bite, not much burn. Very smooth
Liked it. Good overall flavor
Sweet. Great flavor. A great sipping bourbon!
Nice, not overly complex, spicy finish
Just okay, nothing special
Husband loves it especially with his little Havana’s
I found this bourbon spicy as well as a bit harsh even after being chilled. Maybe better suited as a base, but definitely not a sipping drink.
Sweet and delicious with a splash of cold water of course.
This was very good. Smooth.
Clean and lighter than most i've tried. This is my summer bourbon.
Loved it. Detected some sweetness.
Smooth, easy, not a lot of complexity to flavor.
Smooth with a nice finish
smooth, nice spicy taste... sweetness on point.
Really good but the Clyde May's bourbon is better
Very smooth, the layers of flavors from the first sip to the lingering palette chance were very satisfying
Honey forward, a bit spicy for my taste. I wish the toasted notes were more prominent. Vanilla, then honey and spicy aftertaste, but the spice is strong enough to be off-putting for me.
Smooth - my home state's best
Initial strong impression of spice and vanilla, then hints of cherry, honey and bread. Overall, pleasantly palatable. I definitely plan to purchase a bottle in the future.
My favorite of the starter whiskey tasting set. The honey makes for a rich and flavorful, but not overwhelming experience. The finish is a little weak, but it’s one of my new favorites.
Smooth with notes of honey, vanilla and light spice. Good, but nothing to special here.
A very lovely bourbon!
Great taste! Enjoyed this one the best out of my tasting box.
Has some honey flavor, sweet but definitely not too sweet. Would be great on the rocks or in a drink
Great honey taste and very smooth. Not the most amazing bourbon but it definitely got the job done
Sweet. Honey. Very smooth
Smooth and delicious.
That’s a good bourbon. Not my favourite of all time, but dang good.
great taste and a very easy on the palate flavor
It had a nice taste of vanilla and cherry, but was a little sweet. Smooth, but wish there was a little more of a bite. Ill recommend to anyone looking for a nice dinner time sipping bourbon.
Perfect for late nights or a good base for a drink! Nice and smokey
Smooth, a little too sweet for me. I like more bite with my drinks. I could see this being well received by someone that did like a smooth dram. Tasted a good amount of vanilla and cherry myself.
Good flavor. Smooth.
The more you drink the better it taste. Add ice and a splash of water and you can drink it all night. Nothing I would purchase a second time.
Smooth and sweet. Not a terribly strong taste.
I liked it, smooth flavors.
A nice Bourbon; smooth sweet.
Smooth, I enjoyed the flavor notes.
Smooth and slightly sweet...I liked it a lot!
Not as good as the PX sherry cask
Flavor and night were harsh, added some ice and that tamed it. Probably good with a splash of water.
Very good and smooth...first thought was “wow can definitely taste the rye” but after sipping on it some more, it got much better. I would definitely recommend.
Smooth and easy amber blend with plenty of sweetness and just a little spice
Loved it. Right up my alley. Smooth, easy on the palate. Nice creamy notes of vanilla and caramel, honey.
I really enjoyed the sample in the tasting box, so I ordered a bottle. The bottle tasted different than the sample. It's not bad, but it has a mineral taste straight, and ice strengthens that taste. It's better with a shot of water and warmed in the hand before drinking. Won't buy again though.
Enjoyed the taste but not a huge fan.
I would recommend this to people that love a honey taste.
Really enjoyed this. The notes of honey are very prominent. A smooth, easy drinking bourbon.
Very nice on the nose. Smells of caramel and everything that makes you want to taste it. Tastes a little peppery, with a mild floral note. Sharp finish reminded me of a nice rye. Very surprising taste profile very different from the initial smell.
too spicy not my flavor
Hints of vanilla and honey. Solid bourbon.
Good Bourbon with a nice sweet taste.
Smooth and tasty.
Great bourbon for the price. solid, drinkable and smooth.
A good solid bourbon
Growing up in Colorado I migrate to anything from home, was pleasantly surprised how wonderful this bottle of nectar is. This has become my go to whiskey, we always have it on hand at home.
A respectable bourbon.
As a fan of Bourbon, this is as good as it gets for a younger pour. Big notes of caramel, vanilla, honey, dried fruit and leather with a hint of spice. Meant to drink nest at 86 proof, may not hold up perfectly well in a busy cocktail.
I really enjoyed it. Great for the price. Solid every day type bourbon... great alternative to makers or something like that that you can find everywhere.. just why i joined!
Very smooth. Easy to drink. Slight sweetness.
Nice lite and slightly sweet taste.
A solid bourbon for the price, nothing unique or special, right down the middle of your typical bourbon flavor profile
Hits your lips and then the tongue and you are like...whoa..wait..don't swallow this just yet! Sip and let it roll around on your tongue and enjoy the slow sip! Smokey hints of vanilla, honey and toasted spicy notes! Buying one! To share or not to share that is the question....
Too sweet for my taste, but it’s a bourbon, so you may like it if that’s your thing.
Honey really stuck out (after looking at the card)
Nice whiskey. Sweet with honey.
This was drinkable, I definitely got the honey, some banana and vanilla. It was not memorable.
Moderately sweet, mild-moderate syrup, smooth & easy finish with toast
Very smooth, lots of flavors, easy to enjoy!
I was expecting this to be garbage - came in the "welcome box," its from Colorado, etc. - but I was pleasantly surprised. Warm banana bread. Sweet. Like walking into a bakery.
Smell: baking vanilla, slight floral notes
Taste: honey, bread, light earthy spices, toast
Finish: what finish? slight spice
Part of my Flaviar Welcome Box. It was good enough, but not something I would purchase a full bottle of at its current price point. There's other high-rye bourbons I would certainly reach for first.
Nice bourbon. Sweet finish
First one tried. Great intro. Pretty smooth and easy
Just doesn't knock my socks off. I will drink it but have many more in this price point I enjoy better.
I'm the noobiest of noobs entering the whisky tasting world. I can see why this whiskey would make its way into a welcome box as this is a very welcoming selection. I read the tasting notes attentively to ensure I was tasting what I should have been and I must say the notes are dead on without the power of suggestion. On the nose a definite molasses, banana, and vanilla swirl with a very subtle nose burn. I also get a cherry note in there, too. Taste, love love love the spice on the sides of my tongue with a remanence of banana bread, honey, slight amaretto, and vanilla. Very very smooth and easy to drink, clean, and mouth watering delicious! Highly recommended!
It has a smooth taste and the after taste is also good not sweet but not sour you can taste cineman a light sweet taste it was a pleasant experience.
Heavy cherry and Carmel on the nose.
Cherry comes through on the pallet. A bit bitey for me.
Grows on you after a few sips; a tad sweeter than I’d prefer
Nice bourbon, with a touch of spice. Tastes on the young side, but very drinkable.
Very mellow. The honey and banana are very subtle. Nice Saturday afternoon finish. First time tasting this bourbon. Pleased with the sample.
Smooth start to finish. Aromas are appealing and inviting. nice body and flavorful
Quite sweet and smooth!
Smooth but not overly flavorful.
Very smooth warm sweet front with a snap of spice at the end...very nice aroma
Great bourbon with a sweet nose and smooth fruity taste. A hint of banana at the end of the glass always entices me for another pour.
A nice, unexpected surprise. I really enjoyed it. Nothing over the top. I just wish it had a fuller pallet and mouthfeel. felt a little watery
It is a very good, balanced, Bourbon Whiskey that has an aromatic birth; while an elegant life leads to a long & spicy death.
Rich, complex and very smooth! Good stuff here!
Too sweet, too syrupy
What do you drink on a regular? I would like to compare the two
smooth, caramel, delicious
Just the right amount of sweet up front and spice on the end
Got this in my free taster pack, it's solid. Came off a little thin on the nose right out of the vial, but ended up opening into an enjoyable whiskey. Nice vanilla, I do get the banana and then a nice finish. Great craft whiskey for the price
Vanilla , honey, and spice and caramel
Nose: hint of butterscotch. Taste: smooth, not distinctive
Solid bourbon. Not as much vanilla as some I have tasted. Less sweet. Would like this in an old fashioned.
Very smooth and enjoyable
5.5, smooth, sweet. nothing exceptional.
Smooth and buttery...keep thinking I taste bananas at the finish
I really love the favor and the finished really surprised me. After looking at the Flavor spiral, I also noticed spicy notes sweet flavor. I will definitely get a bottle.
At first taste, I was blown away by the amount of flavor. It wasn’t until I read the description and learned it was a blend that it all came together. Absolutely get the hints of Vanilla and Banana that give it a sweet finish. I’m not typically a Bourbon person, but I would recommend to a friend that’s starting out for sure.
strong in a smooth way
Very smooth. All I need is ice.
Very smooth and very nice
Got a sample really like. Strong taste
I really enjoy this bourbon. I am also a fan of Jack Daniels… But it sometimes can get a little too spicy tasting, this one is more smooth and mellow. Great in an old fashion or just on the rocks, or mixed with soda.
Worth an 8. Obvious rye mash influence which made it a solid bourbon.
Very smooth and tasty
Sweeter, smooth, nice finish, well balanced
Smells thick and warm. Honey smell is strong, and goes down very smooth with a slight bite. Taste hints of vanilla & Banana as listed in the tasting notes. Very nice
Really smooth for a high rye bourbon. Got it in a sampler. May pick up a bottle to see how it does in an Old Fashioned.
This is flat out yummy. Smooth and delicious.
This bourbon is carving the smoothest line on a fresh, baby blue sky, Rocky Mountain pow day.
This is an average Bourbon. Several other choices at this price point.
Not my cup of tea. Thought bourbon had to be made in Kentucky. This taste is far from my usual Makers Mark.
Good flavor! Has a slight burn in the mouth but not as it goes down.
Loved it. Perfect for mixing or straight.
It was ok. I didn’t catch all the flavors described and it wasn’t as smooth as I would like neat. I added 1 ice cube and swirled, this cleaned it up and brought out the toasty and a stronger vanilla finish. I added a star once I added the ice.
Excellent Bourbon for the price, really opens up after sitting on the rocks for a bit. Smooth.
Very smooth. I enjoy the flavors
I’m not big on bourbon, but this one was good. For me, not for sipping but drinkable.
This is an excellent Bourbon for the price. Excellent notes and very smooth. I plan to keep a bottle on my shelf from now on.
Really enjoyed the caramel flavor and honey notes!
Excellent bourbon. Very easy drinking and smooth.
It is a very full flavor, earthy, & distinct.
Neat and clean! Very tasty and pleasant to drink
Very easy going on the palate. Would definitely buy.
Smooth and Clean. Great straight and mixed!
One of our favorites. Neat, or mixed. It makes a great base for a Boulevardier.
Hints of honey
Smooth and spicy!
Nice nose and good smooth taste. You catch the rye flavors in the finish.
Smooth and flavorful with a little bit of heat.
This one has grown on me. Definitely a smooth high rye with interesting notes of banana and honey.
Talk about smooth. I tasted the Breckenridge as part of the Advent Calendar. I really liked it, enough so I bought a bottle. You an't go wrong with this wonderful bourbon.
Not a pleasant aroma; lessens over time. Strong taste with a mild burn. Little bit of heat, which I enjoyed, but I wasn't a fan of the vanilla.
One of my favorites
I’m new to whiskey still. This is my second bottle. This has more bite through the taste from start to finish than my The Balvenie. I do taste sweet, but the burn washes the sweet out pretty fast.
Since the above post, my taste has changed. This has become my favorite bottle of the 4 I have. I found being a newbie that if I add water (almost 50/50) I really taste much more of the flavors. This is a really nice whiskey.
Smooth and tasty. Very nice!
Very smooth, soft nose with a spicy finish.
I’m not going to say it had the smoke of almonds with a pine finish, that’s not me! It was great, if you get a chance to try or buy it “DO IT”!
Banana & bourbon just doesn’t work for me. Honey n spice with an odd aftertaste... wow I just have to say this flavor profile doesn’t work for me, at all.
This had a very drinkable, neutral taste. It wasn’t too spicy, but it wasn’t weak either.
The notes of vanilla were noticeable, but I didn’t really taste or smell the others mentioned.
I enjoyed this, but it also didn’t blow me away.
One of the best I have tried so far.
I like the spice on the finish and that it has a pretty long finish.
This is a good smooth bourbon. The only complaint I have is the finish is quick it doesn’t have a resounding after taste.
Smooth with a good balance of sweet and spice.
Smooth. I’ve enjoyed this whiskey many times. Mixes great, definitely has part of the sweet profile. Still a noob, but learning the terminology and concepts.
Easy drinking with friends. Definite buy.
Good honey taste but wasn't crazy about the spice.
Smooth. Nice texture
Smooth bourbon with a mild bite. Good neat or on the rocks.
A little bit of spice that tastes a little burnt but somehow works very well.
Has great potential but loved to see it aged a little longer. Still a good sipper for the price point.
Young bourbon that could have used a little more time in the barrel to pull out the vanilla and spice notes.
Nice bourbon, added ice to smooth it out.
My favorite bourbon so far. Smooth, with a little spice, great aroma, and a pleasant, if slightly bitter, finish.
Good, maybe some honey notes?
Very flavorful whiskey, smooth with some wonderful vanilla notes. Almost tasted like an American spin on an Irish whiskey. Great balance & satisfying finish.
absolutely wonderful whiskey..very smooth from start to finish
I loved this bottle; how sweet and smooth it tasted.
Slightly sweet. Very smooth with a little kick after
Fruity sweet but bitter
Pepper and spice!
Tasty but ends a little spicy for my taste - intriguing but not my thing
Pretty middle of the road bourbon. Some nice notes here and there, but nothing to differentiate it from the pack.
Love this Bourbon. My go to when I need a Bourbon that can be served Neat, with ice, or mixed
A bit of a bite the first sip, but smooth after that. More of an Irish Whiskey taste than a Bourbon.
A smooth bourbon with a toasty finish and well rounded notes of smokey wood, caramel and vanilla and no harsh throat. I first tried this while in Breckenridge, CO for a work trip. I was quite thrilled to see it on offer in my Flaviar welcome kit. A good start to my membership.
So good. Kept tasting caramel corn. Yummy!
This is a very good whiskey. Sooth without any throat burn when drinking it neat.
Very good, smooth Bourbon; if there is such a thing! Great with any Cigar!
Smooth and easy. At lazy j ranch 2019
Sweet and smooth. Good amount of spice on first draw.
I recommend this to be enjoyed neat but will not disappoint if preferred on the rocks. I love it because it’s sweet like a desert but not overly sweet. I would definitely pair this with a good cigar (if you’re into that) after a nice dinner.
This is a good tasting whiskey with no bite. It is very smooth and goes great on the rocks and a splash of water.
I love it, it has a great rounded flavor
Nose of honey, banana, and vanilla. Smooth finish with a front end of heat.
I liked it overall. Delicious front.
The very nice smooth sweet bourbon
Very good on flavor and mildness , very balanced.
A very pleasant bourbon to sip. Smooth, with a nice balance of flavors. Not overly complex, but very enjoyable.
Very nice with good aromas
Good strong taste.
Great aroma. Smooth tasting.
Compared to other drinks I’ve had this has a very distinctive sour fruit taste to it. Vanilla and honey on the nose. Sour fruit(maybe dark cherry) on the tongue. Very good, would recommend though I’m not sure if it’s going in my “favorites” category yet.
Local distillery, great offerings. Can't beat some of the local Colorado distilleries.
It was smooth, and left me feeling warm. Not too sweet. If you like Scotch, try this Bourbon.
I like the flavor of this whiskey. It is very smooth. I would recommend this to all who read this review. Please do try it. I will add it to my go to list. I want to go enjoy some now!
I like the flavors of this whiskey. It is also very smooth. I th
Smooth. Easy drinking
I enjoyed this bourbon, it has a nice blend of sweetness and spiciness. Not super complex, went down well however there are others that I prefer. I certainly wouldn't turn down a dram if offered, definitely worth a try!
This is a great local CO spirit. smooth finish, good character. For the price its a pleasure to drink.
My nose gets nail polish remover associations in the aroma, so not the Bourbon for me.
A bit strong for my taste. Everyone's pallet is different, so definitely worth trying.
First Flaviar I have tested in a testing box. Nice smooth Burbon.
It has some light citrus and vanilla notes.
The finish is long and complex.
Young, very sweet and smooth. You can really taste the young corn, but it's not a turn-off. Normally I prefer a ballsier bourbon but I've become quite fond of this likeable character! This is the guy who's friends with everyone. Not a good mixer, best straight & neat. Better than an entry-level bourbon, and WORLDS better than the ubiquitous Beam & Daniels, but still works well as a great entry level. I just think it's best at a $29.99-$34.99 price point if I'm being honest.
This is a great everyday bourbon. I wouldn’t save this for a special occasion, but I would be more than happy to share this at a party with my bourbon brethren.
I liked it, it’s not like any bourbon I’ve had, I could drink this every day
as a true lover of Jim Beam, this was a pleasant surprise.Def a smooth change of pace for me. Glad I joined the club and chose this as my first bottle.
Typical bourbon bite, but smooth and spicy. I enjoyed it.
Definitely get a banana nose. Deeper in the sniff I can pick up molasses. Taste is toasted, bread, spice, with a little sweet. Late earthy finish.
Was pleasantly surprised with how smooth this stuff was. Just the right amount of sweet. Agree that the flavor profile was spot on.
Very sharp, and I like Bourbon's that have some spice to them, otherwise, they just seem bland. This one has a nice set of flavors that come out, and leave your mouth tingly happy.
Made me switch from Makers
Warm, sweet, satisfying
Too sweet for my taste, but the flavor description was spot on. So if you like what is listed, you will love this.
I like it. Tasting notes are spot on. If definitely get it again.
The tasting notes were accurate. The banana forward notes up front were surprisingly tasty and fun.
Sweet. Slightly spicy on the front of my tongue and going down. Would drink again.
Smooth and with sweeter flavors without being overly sweet. Pleasantly spicy
Very smooth. Very clean finish. Nice round oak flavor.
Nice and smooth without a bite
Smooth enough that I can let it sit in my mouth and taste every nuance, but strong enough to have a finish after I swallow. I love the balance.
Enjoyed this bourbon, I would but more. Smooth but enough bite to enjoy it as a bourbon.
An easy favorite. Smooth and easy over the rocks or neat- with a clean finish!
Good bourbon whiskey. It's a bit on the sweeter side with a hint of vanilla, sugar and banana...I prefer dryer whiskeys, tho. But very drinkable. I didn't find it too sweet.
Good easy drinking bourbon. Light, sweet and easy drinking.
This was way too sweet for us. Carmel brown sugar was the strong note. Our son liked it, so we gave it to him.
Should have also mentioned that we love single malt scotch.
Nice notes. The banana bread is for real, y’all.
Very smooth, doesn’t linger much though. Sweet but not cloying.
A good bourbon. Good level of complexity to it. Good start and finish. Not 10/10 worthy but a solid 7.2 if I could give that rating. Didn't have much of a kick, slight amount of spice/zing but as a whole good flavors.
Excellent Bourbon! I will purchase again when the well runs dry!
We were sitting on the front porch finger picking some blues on my acoustic. Johnny Bones and I had no expectations.. I must admit I was surprised. It was smooth, clean and a little bit of a banana bread after note. Very cool bourbon...It's up there in my top 10% of bourbons.
For a "high-rye" bourbon, it seems to lack any real kick. I prefer a bit more spiciness. It is very smooth and easy to drink.
Great introduction to bourbon.
Amazing! Clean flavour!
First impression is it’s bourbon. Second impression is actually relatively smooth. Strong honey and velvety bananas. Not bad
Solid easy drinker. The guys at Breck know their stuff. If you can get the single barrel, it is worth it.
This is a nice bourbon for the money. It is smooth and easy to drink, with a nice flavor. Nothing outrageous, just a solid product.
Great taste, not too much of a bite
Love this one. Very smooth with plenty of barrel flavor. Vanilla, honey, oaky delicious.
Excellent taste and smooth going down. One of my favorites.
good solid bourbon for the price. on the nose I get note of vanilla and citrus. smooth finish that dissipates quickly
Not bad. Solid on the front but slightly harsh at the end.
Notes of vanilla but a harsh finish
It was just ok to me. Nothing offensive, but nothing truly exciting. It was a subtle drinking experience and would be a decent beginner's whiskey or fitting for a nice old fashioned. Some light baking spice, classic bourbon notes of vanilla and caramel, and a bit of heat. A quick finish wraps it up. If this was a tv show it would be Law & Order. Better than other shows, produced well, but not something you tell your friends about.
Still has the bite of a young spirit. Citrus and cardamom surprise nicely.
Flavorful in at first and after a couple of minutes. Smooth.
Good balance. Pretty smooth finish with vanilla and honey being very forward.
Loved it, very smooth and much more than what I expected it to be!!
This is a good bourbon. On the rocks, it has a smooth Smokey sweet taste to it. Neat, it is a smooth spicy but sweet taste.
Always been a rum drinker, this has convinced me to add bourbon to the bar.
Loved it. Well balanced and flavorful.
Very sweet nose with honey, spice on the finish
I did not hate, nor thoroughly enjoy, the first few glasses I had. After the bottle aired out a bit I found myself wanting to drink it. I'm new to classier indulgence, thats about all I can comment at this time.
It’s fairly smooth lite burn on the back end. I taste some sweetness up front, possibly honey and vanilla. I’m no expert but I say a solid sipping burbon.
Just got a free bottle thanks to referring a friend which joined. Very pleasantly surprised. I never heard of it but this is a great bourbon. Subtle with just enough bite, great balance of sweetness and spice.
Great, smooth taste. Lower proof makes it easy for most everyone to drink, even if they drink it neat. Always a favorite at a party.
Very good on the nose and smooth from start to finish
very smooth, great taste
Good flavor with a slightly harsh finish, which was nice. Smooth and easy to sip on a nice, cool Maine summer evening.
Very smooth and easy to drink but still has a complex and interesting flavor.
Subtle; smells of flowers, Oaky, Earthy; smooth; umami? Heat but no burn; perfect for Danielle and a bit weak for Luke; gently hits the back of the tongue; sweet caramel, cocoa, vanilla.
I found the Breckinridge to have a great nose with mild nutty notes with a mild cinnamon. It had a great flavor however I found the Rey to over power the other flavors in it.
Smooth and graceful. Nothing intricate and that is perfectly fine. Preferred on ice.
Light bourbon, not to long on the finish. I liked the flavor, but it definitely isnt a bourbon I'd drink neat.
A good strong smooth bourbon. Nothing fancy.
Really tasty bourbon, definitely has a kick. Has more complexity than say the standard Maker’s Mark. But I am new to bourbon so what do I know...
Smooth not too sweet like a lot of bourbons
I preferred it on ice as opposed to neat. Ice brings out more subtle and softer flavors.
Not bad slightly oily. Got dried fruit a little honey on the nose. Spice all the way through the taste
This is an enjoyable bourbon. Easy to drink with a great spicy finish albeit a short one.
Overall fairly nice, but a bit on the syrupy side for my taste. Lots of honey.
I enjoyed this just before bed. Smooth and sweet with a bit of a kick. I’m sure this would couple nicely with a rich cigar or pipe.
I’m a scotch drinker dipping my toe in the world of bourbon. As a novice this needed an ice cube and time but after that is was full of flavor and paired nicely with a full bodied cigar
A great easy to drink bourbon
This was a good bourbon but I would have liked more flavor. It doesn’t have the depth that more of the popular bourbons have. The finish did have a little bite to it. Overall it was a good find and I’m glad I have added it to my collection.
Wow... Really smooth finish. It also has a light sweetness to it that makes it a very enjoyable drink to sip on.
I did very much enjoy this bourbon, it rolled smoothly through my palette.
This qas a very fine bouron. found it to be very smooth with a flavor that could be enjoyed.
Smooth, sweet, and warm. Very easy to drink.
Smooth and overall a good versatile drink.
Its very sweet and has a smooth finish.
Smooth. Lots of honey and vanilla. Once it opened up there was some definite spiciness on the back end.
Great! Very smooth and slightly sweet with hints of vanilla and honey. I would recommend this to a professional bourbon drinker or someone new to the club.
This was a pleasant surprise. I received it as part of the welcome box. Bright yet fleshed-out, this has body and pop at the same time. I picked up on more honey and spice than the banana indicated on the flavor spiral (that's a plus in my book). A well-rounded whiskey. Tasted in a Glencairn glass.
Very smooth and delicious. Nice and spicy undertones finish off with a delightful honey flavor.. Very good
Very tasty, very smooth! My wife liked it and she doesn't drink whiskey!
All I can say is WOW! This whiskey surprised me with is smooth and mellow taste. Definitely adding this one to my home bar.
The whiskey that got me hooked. It is incredibly smooth and it has a very prominent banana flavor. I will always have a bottle of it on my shelf and I highly recommend it for those new to whiskey.
A different blend on bourbon with good flavors, but a little too sweet for me
I thought it was very smooth.
Excellent. Very smooth
Very smooth great taste.
Really tasty stuff
Tried this one both straight and chilled with a splash of water. I immediately tasted the honey (even smelled it before tasting), felt the warmth, and tasted the spicy finish when I tasted it straight. Chilled with a splash, it became a little more harsh and not as pleasant. Definitely one of the tastier bourbons I've tried.
Sold bourbon. Strong honey and banana right up on the front palate. Probably better solo than used in cocktails as it's fairly mellow.
Love the banana and vanilla notes. Could have hoped for a little less toasty-roasty notes, but still a solid bourbon.
It was okay.
I very much like this Bourbon. I can’t claim I tasted all the little nuances, but I got some honey, sour dough, spice, and some roasty/toasty. I will be buying some of this. Quite delightful. Full disclosure: I had it over a couple of cubes.
The banana defenitely stands out. Hint of vanilla and a warm finish. Nose is mostly banana
Very smooth, however it was a little too sweet for my pallet.
It was VERY pleasant. I prefer mine neat and it has a remarkable flavor.
I am not a bourbon drinker, preferring Scotch. This whisky could convert me. This fine whisky.
Mmmm...and to that I say:
Aromatics: banana’s foster, marzipan, candied pecans and nutmeg spice.
Flavor: a little heat with spiciness ala cinnamon, whiskey bread pudding comes to mind too. I didn’t pick up on vanilla but edgy oak is there and quite nice. The finish is certainly as described though vanilla isn’t quite there for me. There is youth in this one, it could use some older blending but in general a nice livelier sipper that would probably do better with a few drops of water. I will grab bottle for the shelf.
It smells like pickles (in a good way!) and tastes like cinnamon (in a good way!). Big fan. I would buy a bottle for the home bar.
I enjoyed this very much. A little spicy for summertime. I’d buy this in the winter.
Buttery, sweet and smooth. Very easy drinking. Almost a dessert.
Spicy, roasted with the fruity finish.
Strong flavor with interesting, almost minty finish
Exemplary bourbon. Very drinkable. Lots of sweet notes like caramel, vanilla, and honey in the front, and some nice bite in the back. It drinks well neat at room temperature, or chilled with some extra flavor like a dash of bitters.
I love how smooth it is with no bitter aftertaste left on the tongue. I am new to whiskey and I am loving it!
I really liked the flavors from this bourbon. It was very easy to drink and the caramel notes really gave it an easy finish.
Very drinkable bourbon.
Smooth. Sweet aroma, quick taste of banana and honey (and maybe vanilla) followed by a warm toasty spice note.
Very good. Goes down really smooth. Great taste of honey and spicy.
Great bourbon, very smooth and tasty. I will be adding this to the bar.
Great bourbon on its own or mixed - I made it into an Old Fashioned, Boulevardier, or just mixed with fresh citrus. I'm not a whiskey connessuirre and I really enjoyed this, the bottle's almost gone and I would definitely order again!
Nice start of clove, vanilla and anise. Clean finish. Disappears off the palate quickly. Tastes a little hotter than the 43% alc/vol would suggest. Would be a great whiskey for my next Boulevardier.
nothing overly special, a little burn on the finish.
Deliciously aromatic with a lingering oaky finish!
It's good, but not my go to.
Smooth, sweet, and a delightful amount of vanilla
I really liked it! Made an old fashioned out of it and it was really smooth and tasty.
I both smelled and tasted the honey and banana in this offering. Little
legs and finish but pleasant notes on the palate.
Very smooth. Slight oak taste. Good taste for the price
Very smooth. Great deal. Lightly sweet, great body. Caramel/vanilla, lightly roasted.
Spice, apple, caramel, warmth. Like a fresh baked alcoholic apple pie. Bit of sting upfront and a lingering burn. Flavor profile is nice, but tastes young
As a longtime bourbon drinker this was a pleasant surprise. Good nose, flavorful without being raw, overall a great choice.
Light nose, vanilla, honey, apple?
Taste: not complex. Same as nose with some toasted bread.
Slightly bitter finish, not great.
Decent. Not worth $42.
Very smooth but realized I prefer scotch over bourbon
One of the most approachable and drinkable bourbons I have had. Great every-day bottle.
Corn on the nose, and a quick finish. More bite than expected given the flavor.
Just average. A lot of bite lacking flavor.
Smooth, easy drinking. Sweet and vanilla notes
Smooth, sweet and just plain delicious
I wasn’t expecting much since it was part of my free taste pack but ended up enjoying this one. Smooth and har really nice notes. Has a nice settled sweet flavor. Will add this bottle to my home bar
Amber color. Sweet and smoky with a smooth fruity finish
I imagine in a few years this will be a really great offering. The flavors are nice, just a bit subtle for my taste. A great after dinner for a friend that is new to whiskey.
Would be Excellent on the rocks
Sweet with a spicy finish
Sweet and spicy. A complex little bourbon
Stephanie enjoyed this spirit quite a bit. The sweet fruity flavors mixed with the spicy notes and ending with the vanilla honey finish made for an enjoyable glass.
Great for an every day bourbon. Silky smooth that does not over or underwhelm. Won't blow you away with richness or complexity but a really solid effort!
I could take it or leave it. Pretty bland in my opinion clearly a young whiskey.
Very smooth very light
Not bad, definitely could add this to my list of go to’s, especially with a nice ice ball
Smooth on the front and back end. Nice addition to the home bar.
Smooth with a robust flavor. Really enjoyed it!
Matches well with the flavor spiral, subtle spicy note at the end, not too sweet
Super smooth, one of my new favorites
Super smooth, even with very slight burn on finish. Yummy.
Very smooth the whole way through and even better on ice
Very full and complex flavor, but a little dry for my taste.
Wasn't a fan.
Very smooth and easy to drink.
This bourbon is completely different once it’s cut. Put in one small ice cube, wait 3 min, and magic happens. This grows on you as it goes down.
This bourbon is wonderful, smooth and sexy, with great flavor.
Definitely one of my top ten.
Don't miss this one, it does not disappoint.
Delicious bourbon with a hint of honey
Finish is too strong like rubbing alcohol
Solid vanilla sweetness up front caries through the taste. Finish is a bit short.
Alright taste, a little too strong to finish off.
Reminded me of Honey Nut Cheerios
This is a very solid bourbon! My wife and I enjoyed it very much. The Aroma is the only area where I can complain a little, however the taste is great. Very much a classic bourbon.
Very smooth and easy to drink.
Seems like a classic bourbon to me. Definitely some black pepper and smoke on the nose, with a bit of oak. Tastes of toast and a dash of honey along with tobacco and leather. Better than I anticipated, but still not my first choice in a sipper.
Smooth and very full of flavor
Such an amazing journey for the pallet from start to finish one of my new favorites
Spicy. Strong oak on the nose. Tastes of toffee and cinnamon.
Slightly sweet very good
Smooth. Flavorful. Would definitely buy again.
Surprisingly smooth. Well done!
Very nice rich scent. A bit spicy.
Honey and cherry up front- finishes with the spice notes- short finish. Beautiful color. I want to drink this next it a campfire.
Smooth and sweet, no bite. Like it better than Buffalo Trace and 1792, my normal every day nips.
Good nice tasting bourbon
Rich on the bottom end. Slightly spicy. Mild grassy finish. Would make a nice old fashioned.
This has an amazing nose, I could just hold this in my hand and take a sniff from time to time and be in heaven, but the flavor itself is weak in comparison. It has a good start and finish but it is very light and doesn't keep up with the promise it makes with it's scent.
Very smooth. Did not dissapoint.
I received a sample of this in my first tasting box. I enjoy bourbon and Breckinridge did not disappoint. I found the tasting notes were spot on. I would definitely consider ordering this in the future. Very smooth finish.
Very smooth without the after bite. Enjoy it very much. Will definitely be ordering again.
Very smooth without the after bite. Enjoy very much.
Really smooth. Honey and easy. Tasting notes from gift box are accurate.
Tasted from the intro sampler, wondering if I got the wrong whiskey. It was light and very young and simple, with a candy sweet aftertaste. It didn't look the same color as online.
Smoother than any Bourbon I have ever had. Definitely adding this to the home bar. Our favorite flavor thus far .
2 words...smooth and delicious!!!
Too much burn.
A lit of banana
I liked this because it was smooth and sweet. It didn't give me that gagging on alcohol effect.
Good when mixed with coke
Good honey flavor and sweet
A nice entry Bourbon for someone unfamiliar with a true Bourbon. It wasn’t bad but certainly not something I would buy a bottle of. I’m glad I was able to sample it without committing to a bottle
Nice and smooth taste. Good sweet finish. I like this bourbon.
Good smooth flavor
spicier than a lot.
Nose was amazing, exactly what I feel like a bourbon should be. Pretty smooth palate and finish.
Had it slightly chilled and really enjoyed the flavor.
A good bourbon. Much smoother when chilled or on ice.
Awesome bourbon. Smooth to the last drop! Great toasted notes along with sweet. Highly recommend
Great flavor with a smooth finish
It was good.
Smooth and amazing. Will purchase a full bottle!
Good nose and flavor. Can really smell the banana, vanilla, and bread. Like having a glass of banana bread
Really sweet. Super drinkable.
I actually enjoyed this. The honey note was surprisingly forward making the toasted warm flavours even out over my tongue for a smooth finish with a bit of oak. Worth a try.
Smooth. Flavorful but not overwhelming.
Decently sweetly okay, honey, nice aftertaste. Thanks for adding it to the welcome box. Would not buy for $44 per bottle.
Very smooth. Light honey and sweetness, a nice spicy finish
Drinkable but Nothing special here!
Nice flavor profile.
I didn’t care for this sample.
Very easy drinking and at a decent price. Great bourbon to have around for guests.
Enjoyed it, what you want and expect from a bourbon whiskey flavor profile
