About – J.W. Dant Bottled in Bond is a bourbon you have probably passed by 100 times sitting by on the bottom of the shelf and you never bothered to pick it up. It is a label that has been passed around a couple of times and it currently owned and produce by Heaven Hill. It is at least 4 years old, bottled at 100 proof, and costs around $15.
Nose – Sweet corn, caramel, oak, vanilla. Simple and well balanced.
Palate – Just like the nose caramel, corn, vanilla, and a touch of peanuts. Not very complex, but enjoyable. The finish is long with mostly oak and black pepper spice.
Score – C
Verdict – This is a very middle of the road straight forward bourbon. It won’t wow you, but it won’t disappoint either. At the price point I have to recommend picking up a bottled. If nothing else it is a good cheap bottle to keep around for that friend that always wants a bourbon and Coke.
