We settled on the "Bourbon Barrel" from Montana's since it was on the way out of town, plus it was on the list of ones we wanted to try. Their burger last year, "Ol Smokey", was right at the top of our list so the bar was set pretty high going in.
This years entry consisted of a 6 oz Whiskey-infused Island Beef Patty, Leaf Lettuce, Sriracha Maple Bacon, Apple Butter Sauce, In-house Braised Beef, Chipotle Dip, Cheddar, Cajun Onions on a Toasted Pretzel Bun, topped with an In-house Smoked Pork Rib.
The burger was similar to last years with a few changes but it maintained the BBQ theme. When I order ribs at Montana's I get the apple butter sauce so was glad it was included. It was a pretty busy creation and was tough to eat without parts falling out so I attacked it with a fork and knife.
The burger was ok, a bit too messy and wasn't really very warm. I also would have liked to see a bit more of the braised beef and a little more sauce. Maybe being our 3rd burger of the day, and the longish wait affected my taste buds but didn't enjoy it as much as last years burger.
Rating - 7.5/10
Final stop of today's @PEIBurgerLove tour, Montana's for the "Bourbon Barrel", sweet and tangy. Not bad, somewhere in the middle of the pack. #PEIBurgerLove pic.twitter.com/sMuFR3eEJF— Rod Gallant (@Rod_Gallant) April 29, 2018
