Evaluation: Silverbelly Bourbon Whiskey – Drinkhacker

The most recent celebribourbon is that this bottling from — or fairly, for — nation music artist Alan Jackson. Silverbelly (named for the colour of Jackson’s cowboy hat) is a sourced product from the prolific Silver Display Distilling Firm. Within the bottle is a no-age-statement Kentucky straight bourbon made by Inexperienced River Distillery (previously OZ Tyler) from a mash of 78% corn, 13% rye, and 9% malted barley, and every bottle is being offered with a novel label in accordance with its batch, with every batch tied to a unique chart-topping track from Jackson. The primary batch, “Right here within the Actual World,” has already offered out — although I’d not anticipate a lot variation between any of the deliberate 35 batches.

We tapped into the “Actual World” batch to see if Mr. Jackson has a worthwhile product bearing his title. Right here goes:

The nostril is gentle however nice, with notes of sesame seed and spice, and a really gentle rye grassiness. Mild barrel-driven notes dominate the expertise; I feel a bit extra rye within the mashbill may need given this whiskey a bit extra chunk (in a great way). The palate’s additionally fairly light, leaning on notes of almond cookies, nougat, and brown butter — possibly a contact of apple within the combine. Extra fruit and extra spice look like pure enhances, because the end is in any other case easy with doughy and nutty notes, however because it stands the whiskey works effectively sufficient, its barely larger abv serving to supply just a little extra oomph on the palate.

91 proof.
