Proof66 Notes

Fighting Cock 6yr bourbon is produced by Heaven Hill Distilleries. It purports to be a "Bourbon Man's Bourbon." [The question is begged: Is it also the Bourbon Lady's Bourbon?] The 103 proof is promoted, as is the fact that rye is included the grain mixture instead of wheat.]

Found this stuff a couple years ago and was skeptical because of the price. But its good and packs a pretty hefty punch

Great color; it reminds me of Crown Royal Black. There's just something about those dark colored whisk(e)ys that draw me in at the store. The nose is nothing to write home about. There's some faint bourbon characteristics hiding behind the blunt scent of alcohol. The palate is definitely better than the nose, although it is a bit simple. The two discernible characteristics are a honey like sweetness and a cayenne pepper like spiciness, and really not much else. I know I've ripped on it a bit here, but it's really not bad stuff. A bottle can be had for 14.99 so it's definitely worth that price for what you get in my opinion.

Cloyingly sweet at first before you get hit with the heat and rye spice. Not sure it had enough backbone to carry the proof.

Found it on sale for about 13 bucks and was genuinely surprised. Not amazing but very drinkable for the proof. Damn fine go-to for a quality rye cocktail

Big, bold, spicy, peppery. Way exceeded my expectations. This is my house rye for mixers (I like it better than Rittenhouse 100).
