Proof66 Notes

Calumet Farm Bourbon could be classified as a "high rye" bourbon in that the grain bill is the requisite 50%+ corn with the remaining a blend of rye and a touch of malted barley. They suggest looking for flavor notes of butterscotch, brown sugar, and white pepper (the latter, no doubt, from the rye grain). The name stems from the Calumet Farm of Lexington Kentucky which, under the guidance and ownership of William Monroe Wright, won 8 Kentucky Derbies and 2 triple crowns.

Reviews I've read for this bourbon are all over the chart. Personally, it is a decent bourbon if the price were halved. Nice nose. Good spice on a slight burn finish. But nothing noteworthy; certainly nothing worth $50. Definitely lacks aging.

Ever get the feeling you've been cheated? If not, buy this bottle. Just happened to be in a hurry at the liquor store and decided to try this without researching it or paying close attention to the bottle. Big mistake. If I had bothered to read closer I would have seen that there's no age. That means this is some blend from different sources and it hasn't been made with the care that other distillers use. This brand is all smoke and mirrors. Use a traditional Kentucky farm name, throw it in a fancy bottle, charge $50, claim some "taste committee" gave it 96 out of 100 points. It's not totally undrinkable, but has nothing worth noting. Definite alcohol taste. Seems like a "young" bourbon. If this was a $20 bottle I wouldn't care, but I've been hoodwinked and writing this review to prevent anyone else from being taken by this bourbon. My fault for trying something new. Luckily I bought a bottle of Knob Creek with it.

Really glad you posted this review. They did an amazing job on the quality and appearance of their bottle and I think I would've done the same thing you did had I not seen your write-up. Appreciate the heads up!!
