Wendy’s Bourbon Bacon Cheeseburger Review
The Wendy’s Bourbon Bacon Cheeseburger is made with a quarter-pound of fresh beef patty, topped with Applewood-smoked bacon, crispy onions, and American cheese. This is coated in a sweet and smoky bourbon bacon sauce (it really contains actual bourbon and bacon). This is then all served in a bun.
Our panel found this to be a solid burger, and it was certainly a very filling meal. For our crew, the highlights were the crispy bacon, and crispy onions, which provided a balance in texture and flavor. The bourbon and bacon sauce was flavorful. This also provided the burger with a little extra sweetness. Some of our members picked up on both the sweetness, and a hint of bourbon flavor in the sauce. This was nice and something a little different.
There was some disappointment with the bourbon bacon sauce, however. Our tasters found that a lot of the sauce leaked out of the burger, and stuck to the wrapper. Because of this, they missed out on enjoying a lot of the sauce. This also caused some bites of their burgers to be dry, due to a lack of sauce. Also, the stickiness of the packaging made this a bit messy to handle.
This is a limited time menu item.
