We think this is another award-winning Bourbon from Breckenridge.

Based high in the 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 pun is intended. If you took a hard look at their impressive range of nine product offerings and more than two-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 numerous achievements even more impressive.

Breckenridge has had a Port-finished Bourbon in the line-up for a while. But this is something new, released for the first time in September 2017. As the name implies, Breckenridge PX Sherry Cask Finish is their multi-award-winning Bourbon finished in Pedro Ximenez casks — some of the most sought-after finishing barrels in the entire Whiskey universe. Called “PX” casks among industry insiders, these rare barrels have been rotated off of the Solera aging stack — so they have held some very old and rare Sherry. Like their other finished Bourbons, the primary aging is in new, #3 char American white oak casks for a minimum of three years. Finishing in the PX casks adds four to six months in aging and is famous for bringing notes of fig and creamy raisin.

Unmemorable
 
Adam
Adam,
Phenomenal
 
Steven
Steven,
Smooth. Nothing stands out initially but has good finishing flavor
 
Huagang
Huagang,
If you find this whisky to taste a bit too sparse at first, do the trick where you add one drop of water, and a lot of new flavours will come out for this one specifically.
 
Tom
Tom,
A little thin, spicy, dry.
 
Rene
Rene,
To me, the primary flavor was a nondescript wood —maybe cedarish. It wasn’t unpleasant, just very one-dimensional.
 
Mark
Mark,
A strong nose with pear and oak. The oak continued into the taste with some pepper. The burn when swallowed was a bit more than I cared for. A splash of water really enhanced the flavor profile, adding some caramel to the nose, a much smoother taste and some hints of french toast to the finish.
 
Andrew
Andrew,
Great bourbon. Smooth taste all the way through.
 
Bill
Bill,
Dark and rich... slightly spicy upfront, finished smooth... loved it!

Smooth and great finish!
 
Tammy
Tammy,
I was taken aback by how mellow the taste was. It seemed stronger on the nose for me so I was expecting a sharp spiciness of flavor. This is a nice sipping bourbon.
 
Michael
Michael,
Had quite the bite on first taste. Mellowed well. Spicy taste with subtle scents
 
Jay
Jay,
Talk about smooth, this whiskey is perfect. Light spice nose with a silky smooth hint of cherry finish. Lingering bite for just the right taste.
 
Chris
Chris,
Nice easy sipper. Really enjoyed it.
 
Nicholas
Nicholas,
The caramel and vanilla notes mix with the distinct orange spice...Remarkable.
 
Bernadette
Bernadette,
Clearly an American whiskey, complete with a shuttering slap in the face. Thank goodness for these flavor spirals that I can concentrate on while I twitch. Helped sort the chaos.
 
Ryan
Ryan,
Good orange flavor on the front, with the sherry notes throughout give a great experience
 
Antti
Antti,
It is a very good, complex, Bourbon Whiskey that has an aromatic birth; while a rich & creamy life leads to a long & complex death.
 
Kate
Kate,
Tastes like del bac to Dave Dave likes
 
Matt
Matt,
The spice seems to overpower other flavors, but a smooth finish
 
Jason
Jason,
Good candied orange taste up front with a bit of spice. Little toffee/caramel notes as well.
 
Chris
Chris,
Really nice sipper. Sweet on the nose. Lots of baking spice on the taste. I got a grapefruit finish. Would probably buy.

Sweet and mellow bourbon
 
Ray
Ray,
Sweet in the nose, Spicy finish that builds over time, Would make a killer Manhattan
 
Melissa
Melissa,
Not as rich as a typical Scotch. Orange is pronounced with tasting. Kind of spicy.
 
Tiffany
Tiffany,
Omg so good! Loved all the flavors. It’s everything it says it is.
 
Ben
Ben,
Not my preference... A lot of spice with some vanilla, orange, and sherry. The spice finish gets more intense as you sip. Definitely an oily and full mouth feel. Not bad if these flavors are your preference.

Desert Bourbon
 
Chris
Chris,
A smooth, tasty whole-bodies bourbon. The sherry finish is like velvet.
 
Tim
Tim,
Quite unique bourbon due to the sherry cask finish. The bourbon starts off with a sweet and creamy taste, with vanilla and orange. This turns to a spice much like a rye spice as well as some raisin as it finishes. The finish is not too long, I would say medium but warm. A lot of underlying flavors and scents from this making it very interesting to taste. Each sip was different with new flavors unraveling. A few drops of water might soften it up for you too.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Color is a reddish amber. Nose has notes of sherry, vanilla, red fruit, and oak. First sip is sweet with rye spice, subtle sherry, oak, and a complexity that is difficult to work out initially. Further sips start to unravel the complexity, with subtle notes of leather, orange, and raisin. Mouthfeel is a tad oily and full. Finish is a nice linger of the rye spice as well as baking spice. Overall, this is an excellent example of a true high rye Bourbon.

Smooth.
 
Ashley
Ashley,
Sherry nose, touch of raisin. Sweet at first blush. Spicy. Not astringent. Smooth. Brûlée orange, or marmalade. White pepper and sherry. Very fun.

Very good. Rich and flavorful with little bite and just enough smoke.
 
John
John,
Floral on the nose. Citrus, caramel, cinnamon, and spice on the palate. Finishes smoothly with some medium heat and spice that lingers from the palate. I really liked this bourbon. The floral accents really add subtle depth. The spice at times can feel like it's going to overwhelm the experience with this bourbon, but it never quite gets there, which is nice. Enjoyed this very much.
 
Jon
Jon,
SO good. Warming cinnamon spice and apple cider notes married seamlessly with rich, sherried fruit.
 
JR
JR,
The fruit notes flow out of the glass, the mouth taste dissipated fast making me want more, I have a full bottle of the original we’ll see if it holds up.
 
Kevin
Kevin,
Very nice. A PX sherry finish nicely complements this bourbon's corn and vanilla notes. Smooth and yummy from beginning to end. I only wish the finish lasted a little longer than it does. It's a relative problem, however, solved by another delightful sip.
 
Shawn
Shawn,
Very good bourbon. So smooth
 
Kyle
Kyle,
Smooth with a slight port taste to start and a nice warm bourbon finish. Very nice to sip

Best I’ve had! Plain and simple
 
Jasson
Jasson,
This is exceptional whiskey. Great nose, with strong spice and fruit on the tongue, long finish from the sherry casks. Normally, I'm a scotch drinker - but this one drew my attention. I'm glad I tried it. Truly a great dram.
 
Joseph
Joseph,
Do u hv any Breckenridge Port Cask available ?
 
Darren
Darren,
Outstanding with a beautiful sherry nose
 
Paul
Paul,
I enjoyed the bourbon very much. Found it an easy bourbon to drink neat. I had the port cask bourbon, which I like better. Either way you can't go wrong
 
John
John,
I prefer the port cask bourbon, but the sherry cask isn't bad at all.
 
Christopher
Christopher,
Very smooth but not a 10
 
James
James,
Very smooth and nice feel. As stated in another review when put on ice the flavor really did come out.
 
Ryan
Ryan,
Sherry note right off. Smooth and just a really enjoyable whiskey
 
Nicholas
Nicholas,
Very solid sherry aged bourbon. Worth price. Good neat, with a little water, or small amount of ice. It really opened for me with the ice. Would buy again
 
Blair
Blair,
I would absolutely buy again. Smooth taste with a hint of the sherry cask that lingers and a sweet finish. Great bourbon to try!

Fruit and spice forward with a long finish of baking spices, fig and raisin. A fine sipping whiskey for a long winter night.
 
Robert
Robert,
Sweet, nice spice, good bourbon
 
John
John,
Delicious from the first sip! I tried it neat, on the rocks, with a splash of ginger and it just kept getting better and better. I think I found a bottle that I'll keep hidden for myself and maybe pull it out when my father comes over!
 
Steven
Steven,
Great Bourbon - Have not purchased anything close to as good for the price of this bottle
 
Ernest
Ernest,
Enjoyed this with my son who was home on leave for the holidays was nice to have home drinking something so smooth that he could enjoy instead of the rotgut stuff he normally drinks with his buddies really good buying more today

Christina,
Really love this super tasty sherry cask version of Breck. Usually too expensive, but it's a nice treat. My dessert bourbon.
 
Lucas

One of my favorites thus far🏠
 
Kristen
Kristen,
It’s magic. Mixing it with anything would be criminal
 
Michael

Very nice flavor with hint of sherry
 
Jason
Jason,
Honey on the front end and a nutty/spice smooth finish. Very nice whiskey.
 
Steve
Steve,
what a phenomenal bourbon, the port cask is great as well, breckenridge Bourbon, absolute favorite
 
Danielle
Danielle,
You can taste the honey with the beginning of each sip, and the finish is nice and long.
 
Adrian
Adrian,
Great finish
 
Bret
Bret,
Very smooth, full bodied bourbon. Can definitly taste the sherry from the casks. Doesn't have some of the spice I like on the finish, but it is smooth.
 
Ari
Ari,
Loved the finish.
 
Frank
Frank,
Reasonably smooth but not super complex. Or even a little complex. I have been drinking the good old regular Brek for a few years and i think it is a lot better value. I don’t have anything bad to say but it certainly isn’t a wow experience. Probably priced about right though.
 
Joe
Joe,
Loved this when I lived in Colorado. And very happy it is available here in Virginia. Breckenridge and Woodford Reserve Double are my two go to Bourbons.
 
EMMA
EMMA,
Very smooth but not over powering.
 
Blake
Blake,
Very good Bourbon. Fresh & smooth.
 
Robert
Robert,
Absolutely loved it! Very smooth with great finish.

A little sweet on the nose for my taste. Great flavor all around though.
 
Jefferie
Jefferie,
Really enjoyed sipping on this. From the first warmth, down the throat. To the sweet under tones. Would highly recommend
 
Sherita
Sherita,
This was one of the smoothest whiskeys I’ve ever tasted! So glad to have it in my home bar. Top shelf quality!
 
Paul
Paul,
Bought a bottle of this from Flaviar; I like it, subtle sweetness from the Sherry Cask finish; overall smooth and fruity
 
Chris
Chris,
If I was a bourbon lover I might rate this higher. It’s very similar to Jack Daniels in flavor to me, but much smother. Take this rating lightly, I’m far from a bourbon lover.
 
Eric
Eric,
Subtle and smooth. Perfect level of sweetness. Nice finish. Would definitely consider adding this one to our personal stock.
 
Chris
Chris,
Very smooth.
 
Michael

I love it it has a spicey finish

Best of the Breck bourbons.
