History Founded in 2014 in Memphis, TN, B.R. Distilling Company, is the oldest distillery in Memphis. Being crafted in Memphis Tennessee this bourbon pays tribute to the Jazz Scene and feel of the Memphis Blues which is clear by the bottle. This is a young bourbon and also has a nationwide availability.

Value – You really cannot beat the price on this for the proof. Even the vendor that this was purchased from stated the same. This is a great bourbon for the price point of $43.

Appearance – The label as the same with its Straight offering stays true to its brand of providing you a Jazz feel with every sip that the bottle is around. The only difference here is the focus on the Uncut label and it defines the batch number as well. Not much difference here but it is attractive and draws you in. Mahogany in color.

Nose – I get Summer Fruit, Pear and Seasoned Wood. This nose on this is not overwhelming and for its proof at 121 it masks alot of the ethanol smell that you would normally get. In this I do not smell anything that indicates its high proof.

Palate – Maple Syrup, Buttery Feel, Pepper and Cinnamon are what I receive from my first pull. It is not as smooth as the Kentucky Straight but mostly due to its very high Barrel Proof content. Nonetheless this bourbon is pretty good without that harsh burn that you might get from similar barrel proofs. It’s deep but yet also satisfying on how the burn lingers a bit.

Finish – The finish on this is great and in my opinion is one of the best parts of this bourbon. It’s long and inviting and in this case almost just right. The lingering heat lasts for about 15 seconds in total and for me that is perfect. Many bourbon drinkers may prefer a shorter or longer finish but this meets it right in the middle. There are notes of cinnamon and light oak with this lingering but does not hold on your tongue like other uncut bourbons might. This is likely due to the age of this bourbon.

Summary – This bourbon is unique in the fact that it is stylish and brings something to your collection that brings the Jazz right to your glass as stated in my former review. Jazz music is smooth and easy going which is very much how this bourbon tastes. The great thing about this bourbon is that it is one of the best values for an uncut unfiltered that you will get in the market today. I have looked around and can’t find much that offers the mouthfeel, flavor and punch that this bottle offers.

“If you are looking for a grab on a relaxed night that won’t make you feel bad for pouring. Then purchase a bottle of that Jazzy Blue Note Uncut!”
