Puncher’s Chance Bourbon: The Left Cross Review

Nose, palate, finish, and overall, The Left Cross does not disappoint. Utilizing Jamaican dark rum barrels to finish the bourbon, the whiskey goes all in on its rum flavors. From the wet oak, molasses and raisins on the nose, to the chewy caramel, heavy rum raisin ice cream and aged tannic wet oak on the palate, and the rum, dry oak, leather, rye spice, and spiced raisins on the finish, the sip echoes the same notes all the way through.

A Unique Flavor Combination

The Left Cross stands out from other rums and bourbons due to its very unique combination of flavors. The rum finish imparts a strong influence throughout with a blended hint of caramel, vanilla bean and white peppercorn. The high age and type of barrel used create a heavy rum flavor and an overall earthy quality. This whiskey will be an enjoyable experience regardless of being a fan of dark rum or heavy rum-influenced finished whiskeys.

High Value at a High Price

While the flavor combination is unique, the price is certainly high. At $99.99 for a 375ml bottle, it can be difficult for some people to justify spending so much. Ultimately, the decision is left up to the individual to decide if the unique flavor profile is worth the cost.

Overall

Overall, Puncher’s Chance Bourbon: The Left Cross is a superb whiskey worthy of those who appreciate a unique rum flavor. If you are a fan of rum-forward whiskeys, this will be a great option for your collection.
