Prichard's Double Barreled Bourbon
Prichard's is a Tennessee microdistillery. Like many micros, along with making their own whiskey, they have been releasing whiskey sourced from the big distilleries. Prichard's Double Barreled Bourbon was their first product and is still their most widely known spirit. It is a Kentucky bourbon that is rebarreled in new charred oak, hece the monicker "double barreled."

The nose on this has a strong dose of banana candy followed up by some lighter candy notes. On the palate, it's got a lot of those same notes, very sweet with a lot of candy. For being rebarreled in new oak it's surprisingly light in wood notes. The finish has a slight tinge of pine.
Overall, I'm not too impressed with this one. I've had previous bottles that I've liked, and it's possible that the bourbon changed, given that it's sourced, but I wouldn't run out and buy this one.
