12 year old The D12tance Cabernet Sauvignon Cask Finished, 48%

Price: $120 Issue: Summer 2022 Reviewer: Shane English




This Tennessee bourbon is a dessert treat, with raspberry tarts, cinnamon rolls, and vanilla frosting rising from the glass. There's a sweet cereal aroma—think Fruity Pebbles—playing in the background, giving the nose some depth. The sip is weighty, with dried berries, dank grains, and thyme weaving in and out of vanilla and cinnamon. The moderately lengthy finish introduces more oak for a dry end to each sip. (24,000 bottles)
