This is bourbon has an interesting production story. Old Dominick started out with an MGP made bourbon just like many other distillers. That's what you'll find in the bottle today. However, what they did at MGP was actually a little different. They used their own mash bill, brought their own yeast strain, and trucked in Memphis water all the way to Lawrenceburg, IN. Luckily, they did this several years ago because MGP no longer allows contract distilling! But, there's plenty of bourbon aging and ready to go in Memphis. Old Dominick hired former Wild Turkey distillery supervisor, Alex Castle, to take on the role of Master Distiller. They've been pumping out high rye bourbon since 2016.

Tasting Notes: The nose is dark brown sugar and toasted coconut rice crispy treat. There's a little mint of the backend of the nose. The palate is creme brulee and burnt orange. There's bright fruit. It's like a maraschino cherry. I get a little bit of dry baking spice towards the back of the palate. The rye spice starts to show on the finish. It starts subtly. Black pepper and cinnamon start to shine.
