Psychoanalyst enters a bar and the bartender says, "What's your poison?" The shrink says it's Scotch, but then the boy meets a girl and she says, "Why don't you try Bourbon instead?" And the boy, whom we shall call Kaveh Zamanian for time being, fell in love twice: with the girl called Heather, and with Bourbon. They pulled him down the rabbit hole of passion, beauty and elegance, so Kaveh settled down in Louisville, KY, and founded Rabbit Hole.
Joining the exciting renaissance of Bourbon, Kaveh decided to carve his vision into the landscape of the quintessentially American booze, picking the best talent and gear on his way. Behold (with your jaw dropped), he has created an opulent Straight Bourbon Whiskey that'staking awards left and right. Named simply Rabbit Hole Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is mature and no-rubbish Spirit with 95 proof and some spice to it. And the secret? Some of it is definitely the rare grain bill: 70% corn, 10% malted barley, 10% honey malted barley and 10% malted wheat. What you get is an exceptionally sweet and rich Bourbon.
I tend to like things on the sweet side, and this did it for me. First hit on the nose was a little background smoke, very light followed by dark caramel. And that was the taste, at least for me. Very smooth and yummy. My first thought (and my daughter’s) was “this is scary good. I could drink this anytime, anytime at all, all the time!😀 Loved it!
Very smooth, but almost too smooth as the flavor profile is a bit single tracked and could use more complexity.
Pretty good. Enjoyed it.
Very smooth and flavorful. Good sipping bourbon
Easy, not complex, lots of Honey, a bit of wood, longer smooth finish with vanilla hints, good dram
This is one of the best bourbons I have every had and that is saying a lot for a 4 year bourbon. The vanilla, caramel, citrus, and almost butterscotch flavors just come together to make just a beautiful whiskey to be enjoyed time and time again!
Seems kind of new, being pretty peppery and grainy, yet slightly sweet. I didn't get any of the fruit notes, but more spices and herbs. For the price, I'm not that happy with it, but it's not drab either.
I get the taste of botanicals mostly, maybe the black pepper, ginger and slight mint both on the nose and tongue. Enjoyable enough, not an everyday dram but it is growing on me over time.
Favorite of the batch I just got
Loved it. I am more a scotch guy but this whiskey hit the spot.
Wow. This is a bourbon. Classic bourbon vanilla flavor adds smoothness without being overbearing or too sweet. Perfect for sipping neat or on the rocks.
Smooth but still has lots of flavor.
Amazing whiskey, smooth taste and a little caramel finish one of the best I've ever had
This is my husbands favorite so far!!
Great sipping whiskey
It's fine. Good knowing it's only two years old. Not worth the money compared to other whiskeys in this price range unless you love cinnamon and new whiskey flavor...
Awful- so bad I couldn’t even cook with it.
It is one on my top picks and I am going to order some more!!
It took me on a journey…
The flavor was wonderful!!! Loved the orange citrus flavor with the sweet mellowing flavor of the honey. One of the first whiskey's I can actually enjoy sipping. Other whiskeys, I usually have to mix it or just shoot it. My friends really enjoyed it too. I almost had to put the bottle away, because my friends were going through it faster than I expected. I wanted to make sure I still had a good amount for myself for later.
It is nice, has smooth caramel tones at the end. Currently my favorite bourbon.
I wasn't terribly impressed by this one. For the price tag it falls short in complexity and notes. I didn't get much honey in this as I did nuts. I likely won't be reaching for this one again.
Really good, smooth bourbon.
Smooth, caramel and vanilla tones, a definite hint of honey. This one is a sipper - I have to slow it down or it hits like a hammer - but a keeper, if I can train myself to behave.
Really solid for the age and price point, sweet Carmel orange and maple and smooth, with a light and pleasant bite
Decent bourbon - good mix of sweet and spicy. Strong smoke and peppery spice notes up front. Honey and orange run throughout. After breathing, get more mint notes. Nice sweet aftertaste.
Some of the best bourbon I have in a long time. Extremely smooth for such a young bourbon, but it’s delicious! You gotta try it.
This bourbon took me surprise. The nose brought me to an old barn filled with shucked corn (and other good farm smells). Looking out the barn I could see the wet ground and grass, with a road lined with trees of an orchard of apples. Allowing to breath, I could now smell processed smoked meats. The taste at first stringent, then relaxed, it concurred with the nose statement about. I enjoyed it very much. It reminds of them late summer harvest.
Loved it. Smooth, good spice and worth the spend. I'm a big fan, now being overdone with Maker's Mark the last 2 years (but don't tell my dad).
Starts off sweet and doesn't change a whole lot. I prefer more earth/wood tones in my bourbon, so this isn't at the top of my personal list but it is enjoyable nonetheless.
At <$50, a good purchase. Doesn't have complexity of some higher end browns, but I enjoyed the bottle. Was traveling and enjoyed a few glasses at a bar where it tasted even better than home. Same label, so possibly the ambiance! Good value
have not tried it yet, so no opinion.
Why would u rate than one of my top 5 .
Alright. It had a lot of botanical taste that were meh.
Great flavor. Great price. Great bottle. Everything you would expect from a quality bourbon. At this price point, definitely top 3 on my list.
This bourbon is well beyond it’s age. A REAL treat!
Love this one. It has become my go to mixer and is also excellent on its own. Carmel, vanilla, light and sipable.
Good, easy drinking.
It was a very differently flavored bourbon because it contains no rye and two different types of barley and wheat. We found it to be a very welcome and distinct, spicy change from a typical bourbon.
Not one of my favorites. Astringent and really young tasting. Expected more for the high price. Will not purchase again.
Why did you review twice.. Once was enough.. Should probably delete one.
Not one of my favorites. Really astringent and young tasting.
The orange and honey dominant flavors pair well with the smoke and pepper making Rabbit Hole Bourbon a pleasure to sip and roll around on the tongue. A single 2 inch cube makes it a perfect drink for the Arizona winter.
Great, easy drinking, bourbon. Has just enough bite to remind you it’s still a bourbon too! Definitely will purchase again.
Very good "baby bourbon"
Very smooth and complex considering it is such a young bourbon!
This is my new favorite bourbon for the price. Very smooth with just right amount of spice.
Pretty good, but not once of my absolute favorites. A bit longer finish than I prefer.
I’ve had both bourbons and they are both exceptional. This is a classic bourbon with a medium to long finish. Great caramel and vanilla notes with a touch of mint and citrus. Just the right level of spice.
It might not be #1 on my list, but it has an argument.
An absolutely wonderful, drinkable bourbon. Perfect in a classic Old Fashioned. Not too sweet, a little complex and lovely finish. I toured this distillery and found that they really put an lot of effort into crafting a beautiful product. The Rye is also exceptional. I look forward to other products they will have in the future.
