Garrison Brothers Distillery | Hye, TX 115 Proof | Aged 4 Years
Nose: Caramel and cherry bomb! Dark fruit, vanilla, and oak say hello, followed by a slight bit of tobacco to round out the aromas.
Palate: Oak and vanilla up front followed by some nice baking spice notes. The middle has a bit of leather and the back has a slight tingle of cinnanmon candy.
Finish: Strong but nice and smooth. The oak and vanilla pop from start to end.
Score: 4 out of 5 Boozysnacks.
AT GARRISON BROTHERS DISTILLERY IN HYE TEXAS SOUTHEAST OF FREDRICKSBURG IN THE HILL COUNTRY, BOURBON IS FAR MORE THAN JUST WHISKEY. WE ARE A FAMILY OF BOURBON MAKERS AND BOURBON LOVERS, FULLY COMMITTED TO PROVING THAT THE FINEST BOURBON WHISKEY ON THE PLANET WILL BE BORN IN THE TEXAS HILL COUNTRY. A BOURBON THAT BEYOND ITS INCREDIBLE TASTE, ALSO HAS THE POWER TO FORTIFY FRIENDSHIPS AND FAITH, WHILE INSPIRING LEGENDARY STORIES FOR LIFE. SURVIVING A TEXAS SUMMER IS DAMN NEAR IMPOSSIBLE. OUR FIRST BATCH OF BOURBON DIDN’T STAND A CHANCE.
The story of Garrison Brothers did not start off easy. The scorching heat nuked the barrels. They leaked. Cracked. Broke altogether. Hundreds of gallons were lost. It’s a craft. A calling. A livelihood. One thing is certain: Life is simply too short to waste on inferior whiskey. There’s nothing quite like Texas Pride. And Dan and his team were hell-bent on doing whatever it took to make the very first, legal Texas bourbon. So, come on down to heavenly Hye, Texas to see it all for yourself. We’d love to welcome you to the GB family. We value God, family, friends and our country, foremost, but we always welcome strangers. Salud! Dan Garrison-
