Davidson Reserve Four Grain

Posting a quick and short review on the Davidson Reserve Four Grain, a whiskey I brought back with me from my recent trip to Nashville. This four grain whiskey is made by blending three of the Davidson Reserve grain whiskies, Tennessee Straight Rye Whiskey, Tennessee Straight Sour Mash Whiskey and Tennessee Straight Bourbon Whiskey.

The whiskey is age for at least three years and the four grains included are rye, wheat, corn and barley. It is bottled at 100 proof with a 50% ABV.

Tasting Notes

Nose: oak, vanilla and caramel

Palate: wood, caramel, chocolate and vanilla

Finish: dry, with a slight burn and vanilla ending notes

I bought this at the recommendation of some at the airport and based on the way they talked it up, I was hopeful that it would be great. Sadly, it wasn’t great!

The taste was one of a young whiskey. I think this is one of those whiskies that could have benefited with it being aged a bit longer. It’s not a bad whiskey by any means but it is a whiskey that will not knock your socks off.

I was expecting a lot more from this whiskey, but it definitely did not deliver on those expectations. It’s simply an average whiskey that is easily forgettable.

Cheers!
