Amber. Reminiscent of its cousin, Old Medley 12 Yr.
Youthful grain with aromas of caramel and butterscotch
Momentary sweet grain on the front palate with hints of caramel and vanilla
Oak rising in the mid-palate adds complexity and balance
The finish is faster than we would like, but a prominent leather component adds nicely to the mid-palate complexity.
Overall Rating: (87/100) Recommended
Medley Brothers is the latest offering from Charles Medley Distillery. While not as refined as Old Medley 12 Year, it also retails at just half the price of its older cousin. With a mashbill of 77% corn, 10% rye, and 13 % malted barley, you’ll find Medley Brothers a pleasant sipper with a sub-$30 price tag, and at 102 proof, you’ll find that Medley Brothers stands up nicely in your favorite mixed drinks.
