"The Dopey One"
Released August, 2022
This barrel is a tribute iconic Jewish scientist Albert Einstein, whose nickname as a child was "The Dopy One".
Age: 6 years, 5 months
Type: Straight bourbon
Mash bill: 60% Corn/ 36% Rye/ 4% Malted Barley
Nose: Caramel, ocean and coca cola predominate with a fairly strong burst of ethanol
Palate: First notes are contrasting with the nose as they're gentle and creamy. The middle echoes the cola notes from the nose and brings some root beer with it. One thing that MGP rarely does is stay in the same place and it is true here too. The back of the palate departs fully from those earlier flavors and delivers up raspberry and stone fruit.
Finish: Long. Strong. Mostly early palate flavors.
