Review #: 528
Description: Dancing Goat High Rye Bourbon: r/Bourbon #6924
Background: 30 for 30: Day 22. Back to the goat. This time it’s a little younger but still with the 75/21/4 mashbill and a price under $60. Let’s see if a few less years makes the value less appealing.
Distillery – MGP
Bottler – Dancing Goat
Brand – Dancing Goat
Selection – r/Bourbon
ABV – 56.7%
Age – 6 Years
Nose – Chocolate wafer, raspberry syrup, leather, tobacco, coffee beans, rye spice
Taste – Maple syrup, toffee, waffle cone, caramel, sweet apple
Finish – Lots of spice moves in, cinnamon, rye, coffee, dark chocolate, fruit still has a little influence in there for a really nice balance on the long finish
Would I buy a bottle? Definitely
Thoughts: A little less time in the barrel didn’t really affect the quality. A wonderful texture to it and lots of roasty notes complimented well with fruit. Really hard to think of anything in the bourbon world right now that is a better value than these Dancing Goat single barrels. Scoop them up while you can.
