Dutchess Private Reserve Bourbon Review


Name: Dutchess Private Reserve

Bottled By: Millbrook Distillery

ABV: 45%

Proof: 90

Age: 6 Years

Notes: On the nose Dutchess Private Reserve has a nice vanilla and honey aroma to it. On the palate there are some similar notes of warm vanilla, smooth honey, spices, and a light smoky flavor. I also noticed some light fruit flavors of apricots and fresh peaches. This whiskey is very smooth and light. The finish is moderate and earthy with notes of vanilla and oak. Dutchess Private Reserve is a 6 year old whiskey one that definitely has plenty of flavor and is very smooth. This is a whiskey I would reach for when I wanted something light. I tried this one neat, with a splash, and in a cocktail and I enjoyed it best with a splash. It seemed to bring out the flavors a lot more, especially the smoky flavor, which I really enjoyed. Overall, this is a good whiskey and one that I would recommend to anyone who is looking for something light with a unique flavor.

  1. Watch out — the whiskey Nazis don’t care that it’s good. They only care that it’s sourced, which for them is the dirtiest word.
