Dual cask: 2 distinct oak barrels. Finished in French Oak barrels.
The bottle tested was Batch 1, Bottle 3955 and was purchased in Washington DC. This is a 45% alcohol bourbon.
Tasting was done straight up. This is a novelty type bourbon, and got some great reviews on-line and in magazines. We are lucky to have a bottle, but now that we tried it…we are stuck with a bottle.
|Rater||Nose||Alcohol Burn||Taste Scale||Overall Score|
|Tripp||Pleasant||B, not bad at all||+1||77|
|Jason||Smooth with a slight alcohol flavor. A lot of wood, too much wood – I am not a lumberjack. A flavor I would never reach for, but good to sample. Having said all of this, there is no more Filibuster to drink.|
|Tripp||Sweet with wood, lots of wood. Like a sugary piece of oak in your mouth. There is the earthy finish that makes it only a +1 sweetness, but the wood is overwhelming. A very different flavor, but a flavor I would never reach for. My bottle is used just for tastings and for comparison. You really need to like the oak flavor to every buy this bottle. More of a novelty than a legitimate drink.|
