My James T. Kirk Bourbon showed up today. The packaging was first rate. it really LOOKS like a high end product. Now to the booze. It has a nice dark caramel color and the nose is surprisingly light and floral. Not strong to the nose but then it is an under 100 Proof spirit (94 Proof) small batch aged at 12 years. But it is more likely a mix of bourbons FROM 4 to 12 years. It is fairly nice tasting bourbon with a sweet (caramel/vanilla) start and the rye spice taking over later on. It has the medium to short finish you'd expect from a mid proof bourbon. All in all it is a very nice but not great bourbon and probably better served with an ice cube or in a cocktail. Is it worth $60 + shipping? If you are a Star Trek fan, the bottle alone makes the purchase well worth the price. If not you can get much better Bourbons for the same or even lower price.
I just received my James T. Kirk Bourbon Whiskey in the mail and I am blown away by how great it is! It has such a smooth yet very rich taste. As a longtime Trekkie I love the concept of this and the product is just great.
Received my bottle today. It's not just a Star Trek thing. This is amazing whiskey !
