About – “We took the sweet softness of our Huling Station Straight Wheat Whiskey, and blended it with the bold warmth and complexity of our Huling Station Straight Bourbon to create something unique.” This 50/50 blend of high rye bourbon and wheat whiskey is one of two new releases from Old Dominick the other being the straight wheat whiskey that is used in this blend. It is bottled at 100 proof and will set you back around $45-$50.
Nose – Stewed pears. It has a very pleasant syrupy sweetness that is backed up by a prominent baking spice.
Palate – Starts off with a butter note. There is some funk in the mid palate, but I just can’t put my finger on it. Behind the funk is some vanilla that is quickly overtaken by a sweet cinnamon leading into a medium finish that is straight Red Hot candy.
Score – C
Palate – This blend comes across disjointed to me. It melds at times, but most of the time the profiles of the two whiskeys seem to be competing. It is an interesting pour and I have gone back for multiple pours trying to figure out what is going on. There is nothing bad going on here. The flavors are enjoyable I just think a bit more could have been done with the blending to make this a more cohesive product, and lend to a better drinking experience.
