About – The Clover is part of a larger collection of whiskeys named the Bobby Jones Clover Collection. Up until recently The Clover had only been available at select golf resorts around the U.S., but is now being released slowly into retail stores. The collection is made of a Straight Bourbon Whiskey, a Tennessee Straight Bourbon Whiskey, and a Straight Rye Whiskey. Today we are reviewing the Straight Bourbon Whiskey which is sourced from MGP. This is a Single Barrel release aged 4 years, bottled at 92 proof, and carries a retail price of $40.
Nose – Very floral with vanilla and dark honey. There is a bit of orange peel lingering around as well.
Palate – It is sweet and on the lighter side. The orange peel form the nose serves as the back bone for this bourbon and is accompanied by vanilla and a light honey. The finish is medium with honey covered grain and nutmeg shifting into a light oak.
Score – B-
Verdict – I will start by saying as a golfer I am a big fan of both the branding and the packaging of this product. The bourbon itself was a pleasant surprise. It is on the lighter side, but not lacking in flavor. It meets the bill of being a good clean spring / summer sipper. I could easily see this being enjoyed on the golf course. With a price point of $40 this is a winner. I recommend picking up a bottle if you come across it.
