Sticking it to 'em: Walking Stick Bourbon
Walking Stick is a no age statement, single barrel bourbon from the Sazerac owned Barton 1792 Distillery.
Walking Stick Single Barrel, 45% abv ($35)
The nose has fruit cocktail and sweet white wine. Wow, the palate is really fruity. It's like canned pears. The finish is sweet with more traditional bourbon note on the nose.
I didn't really care for this, but if you're into light, fruity bourbon, you might enjoy it. As for me, I'll keep walking and stick to other bourbons.
Thanks to John Burlowski for the sample.
