For my first style of Watershed Distillery, this was a sound if unspectacular bottled-in-bond bourbon. It does not have quite a few youth notes and is additional apple- and rye-ahead (although the mash bill is undisclosed), and I located it a terrific mixer for a Manhattan or a much less-sweet Gold Hurry, as the honey and apple notes elevate every other. As a neat pour, the black pepper can conveniently overpower the rest of the flavors. A restricted nose opens with just a trace of dim honey and savory apples. Black pepper and cider ability the flavor, with oak and spice lingering on the end. Applewood joins the nose soon after some air as does roasted corn.
