291 Colorado "The Bad Guy" Bourbon Whiskey
Originally made as an experimental batch, Bad Guy is a wheated four-grain bourbon. 291’s first award-winning bourbon whiskey and it’s most bold, rich, and complex whiskey. Made from corn, malted wheat, malted rye and beech smoked barley mash, this whiskey is heavier on the sweet side despite its high proof. Always presented at barrel proof.
291 Colorado Bad Guy Bourbon Batch #6 is the perfect holiday whiskey. There is a crisp freshness reminiscent of the Colorado mountain air in the fall, with a richness and spice similar to the treats and baked goods we enjoy this time of year.
On the nose there is an assortment of baked fruits, such as peaches, apricots, and apples, all dusted with cinnamon and clove, and savored alongside rich toffee and a mug of steaming herbal tea. Aromatic cedar and eucalyptus add brightness to the nose just as an open window on a brisk fall day brightens up our home. The palate is bolder than first anticipated, with the high proof greeting us at the front door with a confident knock. And it brought its friends along: the eucalyptus, apricot, and spice. The greeting is a warm and welcomed one. As their joyful stay ends, we are left with oak, aspen, tingly cinnamon and clove, and subtle toffee on the finish.
