Redwood Empire Distillery- Bourbon Whiskey - 90 proof
For every bottle sold, Redwood Empire Distillery plants a tree. According to their website, they have planted more than 185,000 trees to date!
“Named for the 14th tallest tree on the planet, Pipe Dream is our first Bourbon whiskey.” - Redwood Empire
“There's just no.... (Grunts) whiskey taste to it...“
Starting #2021 bourbon reviews off with a completely unknown! Grabbed this at the local liquor store based on a stranger’s recommendation. While the company seems to have a cool story, and certainly promising future, we were not exactly blown away by Redwood Empire’s Pipedream. It was fine for sipping (or chugging?), but we were definitely left wanting more. Per the usual, we look at five different categories in our own terms: Bottle, Appearance, Smell, Value, and Taste. Enjoy the review, drop us a comment and make sure you subscribe to our podcast, YouTube, like us on Facebook and Instagram.
Bottle: “Pretty standard... looks kinda home-made.” - Steve

Smell: “Wood. Wait a minute. Red... Redwood?“ – Steve
Value: $40 bucks or so retail
Taste : “I mean its got some flavor, then it just kind of falls off into the trees.” - Steve
