"It takes a special barrel to create a bourbon nectar sweet enough to be enjoyed at such a high proof. The potency normally overpowers the flavor. This ain't the case with the Cowboy - it's so sweet, the flavor overpowers its proof. And you can thank the Texas heat for that.
But as delicious as it all sounds, make sure you proceed with caution; barrel-proof bourbon is not for everyone. It should always be savored in moderation. For something strong enough to run a car engine, the finish is incredibly smooth. While surprising, maybe it ought not be, as that restraining makes it ideal for summertime drinking. This stuff was heat-forged in Texas, after all. "
