Assessment: Pigeon River Tennessee Whiskey

The Coated Bridges Whiskey Firm (TCBWC) is finest identified for its Ruddell’s Mill Kentucky bourbon. Now its out with a companion model, Pigeon River, which is a sourced Tennessee whiskey made with the Lincoln County Technique of present process charcoal filtration earlier than it’s aged. There’s a whole lot of information offered concerning the Pigeon River Bridge, however I determine you care little for that. No age assertion right here, although a curious “batch 0422” designation on the label means that by some means there have been 421 batches of this produced beforehand. Hmmm.

Anyway, let’s dig in.

Like many younger Tennessee whiskeys, this presents as quiet and nice, virtually innocuous. A classically wood-forward nostril is heavy on char and roasted meat parts, seeming to be teetering on the sting of maturity, however not fairly there. There’s not a lot to the nostril in any respect, however the palate finds extra to discover, taking its initially heavy wooden character and bringing in notes of brown banana, almonds, and coconut — although all of it’s comparatively restrained. It’s a innocent whiskey, and although the end has simply the slightest fringe of spice to it and a modest nutty notice, its actually as innocuous as they arrive. Straight sippers gained’t discover a lot to seize on to right here, but it surely’ll work simply effective in your Not-Jack-and-Coke.

96 proof.
