It’s February in Gothenburg.
I’ve had a few – more is promised – a feed is in order.
Don’t all the bars do food?
Bourbon St – maybe a burger will suffice?
Yes – burgers indeed – and what to drink?
Well I’ll stick with the American theme & order that distinctive black & gold labelled square bottle I don’t recognise.
Old Pepper 1780 Straight Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey made my glass.
The usual candy floss sweetness on the nose – but with an attractive spiciness to boot
A decent wholesome mouthfeel.
That spice coming through stronger. Suggests a high rye content – although the virgin oak tannins could be working their magic too.
A very easy & engaging bourbon with a touch of drying spice on the finish to add character.
Who’s behind this one?
A spot of googling reveals a firm by the name of Venturi Brands.
Despite the trademark dispute Old Pepper was certainly a tasty little number – along with the enjoyable burger & chips!
