  • 59% of the blend: a 2008, 21% rye bourbon

  • 3% of the blend: a 2006, 36% rye bourbon

"In the glass: The color is bright, almost true amber, sporting medium legs, and a nose heavy with raw cocoa, vanilla, macadamia and nutmeg.

On the Palate: The age of the bourbon has drawn the sharpness out of the rye, leaving behind a silky blend of wood and spice, buttered toffee, apricot and cloves.

The Finish: Regrettably short, the finish is shot through with impressions of Lyle’s Golden Syrup and caramelized banana.

Pairings: Definitely on the sweeter side, with a luxurious mouth feel, this bourbon would pair well with echoing flavors: chocolate sourdough bread pudding, vanilla poached pears with creme anglaise, or – if you’re lucky – the last of the summer peaches.

With Metze’s Select, MGP has shown it can do more than just distill base spirit for others to finish.  The mash bill is daring. The final product benefited from the risk, though, as the high rye content added depth without overpowering the bourbon character of the whiskey.  Just a tad more to balance the sweetness, and Metze’s would have scored a tic higher.

I give Metze’s Selection bourbon a rating of 87 Points." -
