This whiskey gets its name from the creek next to the MGP Distillery in Lawrenceburg, Indiana, and this Indiana-only Bourbon is the first ever to carry MGP’s own name on the label. It’s a unique blend of 70% standard Bourbon along with the distillery’s own rye, corn, and light whiskies designed to showcase all of the different types of whiskey made at the distillery.
The nose is mellow with subtle spices and hints of caramel, honey, and vanilla. The taste has good cinnamon and black pepper spices, along with a nice balance of sweeter honey and toffee notes underneath. The finish is medium-length and slightly dry with quickly fading spices and a subtle toffee sweetness. (October, 2018)
