A Whiskey worth the climb. 

Bryan Nolt was not afraid to set his sights high when he started Breckenrigde distillery back in 2007. Set in a small mountain town 9,600 feet above sea level, Breckenridge is the world’s highest distillery in production. While the logistics of setting up a distillery in this location may have been challenging, the reasons for doing so are quite simple. Half a bottle of any Spirit is about 50% water so Bryan wanted his distillery to be as close as possible to the purest natural water source he could find. Today, with multiple award-winning Bourbons on the mantelpiece, Bryan’s dedication and focus have been fostered throughout the whole distillery team.

One such release is the Breckenridge Port Cask. This expression gives the award-winning Breckenridge Blend a final bit of loving with six months in Tawny Port casks. Some may argue that a Whiskey that won The World Whiskies Awards Best American Blended in 2016 doesn’t need finishing but who can resist a flavor hit of raisins and Maple Syrup in a top-quality Bourbon. The established high rye content of the Breckenridge Blend balances out gracefully against the darker sweetness found in the Port. This is a twist on a must-drink Bourbon that will keep you coming back for more.

Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.

Judy
Judy,
Quite smooth, I taste the slightly sweet and dried fruit. My first smell detected banana. I enjoyed it!

Scott,
I'm a port wine drinker and a bourbon drinker. What a delightful treat to have a mash-up that is so well executed. Very, very nice.
 
Matt
Matt,
Very smooth. A tad on sweet side; but for a blended whiskey - I’ll continue to enjoy. I read a previous review that said Breckinridge didn’t let them down yet. Cheers to that! I agree. I’m very curious how this compares to the px cask so that might be next on the list. If the proof was a bit higher I’d give a ten... 🥃

Benjamin,
Really enjoying this port wine finish. Lots of vanilla and caramel, but also a hint ofaple syrup and red fruit port influence. Very nice.

Jamie,
Great flavor, got kick, but more than manageable. Well rounded with a little sweetness.

A little hint of port wine behind a balanced sweet but not sugary taste with a smooth and fruity finish

Roger,
Breckinridge has never let me down and this was no exception. Great taste, only complaint is it disappeared fast, once a couple of friends joined for a glass or two. :)
 
Ryan
Ryan,
So bloody good. The extra port cask really helps round out a nice spicy bourbon.
 
Matt
Matt,
I loved this whiskey. My pallet skews toward the sweet side so a port finished bourbon is right up my ally. Strong butterscotch and dried cherry on the nose. The cherry carries through to the pallet along with some raisin and plum. Rich on the tongue. Finish is long and satisfying with a touch of spice. This is a great after dinner dram.
 
Mark
Mark,
I have tried a number of port cask finished whiskeys. My favorite being The Balvenie 21 year. I had high hopes for this product but I have to say that I am deeply disappointed. The flavor profile for this whisky is horrible. It comes on with a strong rotten prune taste and has a rather flat almost tinny finish to it. Frankly I'm going to put this one on the shelf and serve it to friends who are interested in trying it but I am not going to touch this one again.
