Is it possible that for under $40 you can enjoy probably the finest "Barrel Proof" whiskey? Low and behold, the answer is yes! We thought we were taking a chance trying Devils River Barrel Strength Texas Bourbon Whiskey. Truth be told, shame on us for not finding this product quicker.
At 117 proof, we weren't sure what to expect but this drink is full of flavor and smooth as velvet. Sure, there is a punch to it, but it tastes more like a 90 proof drink. At anytime do you feel you are drinking a high-proof drink as there is no heat whatsoever. The dark amber color draws you to the fancy, rectangular shaped botte. Scent of oak and vanilla hit you right away before the fruit flavors and a touch of honey.
Devils River is stocked with several great products which include Distiller's Select Straight Bourbon Whiskey and Single Barrel Straight Bourbon. For those who enjoy flavored products, Devils River offers coffee, agave, and cinnamon bourbon as well. While we never tell anyone what to spend your money on, Devils River is a value that can not be beaten.
