Proof66 Notes

Homestead Bourbon styles itself as a "barrel proof" bourbon and is indeed bottled at a relatively high 113.4 (though we have personally noticed many single barrel bourbons in the 120s). We're told by co-founder and president John Andrews that their bourbon is distinguished by being barrel proof (stressed in the title) and very proud of the fact that it is uncut (most bourbon is blended back with water to bring it down to 80-90 proof from the 110+ that sits in the barrel) and unfiltered (many whiskeys are chill filtered, which removes some of the fatty acids and can make the spirit taste lighter and thinner). To their mind, this brings out the greater glory of the flavor of the bourbon than competitor products...

Homestead is a good, quality bourbon. It would get 5 stars if it had a bit more oak and age to it as it seems to be missing something and I can only discern that as being young. 8-10 years might make this one of my top 5 bourbons. That being said, it is a very versatile mixer in a class bourbon cocktail, such as an Old Fashioned. And it is much easier to mix at this price point. All in all, a solid bourbon and one to enjoy if you get the chance.

I was blown away. This was the best bourbon I've ever had. Wish they would start selling in Michigan. I think it would sell like crazy here.

Superb quality bourbon. Velvety smooth, toasty notes, with a touch of honey. I highly recommend this one if you can find it!
