80 Strong Bourbon, 45%

Price: $22 Issue: Fall 2006 Reviewer: Dominic Roskrow

Light in body and flavor, but what's there is well balanced and easy to drink. You'll find notes of sweet corn, caramel coated nuts, mint, and soft citrus notes. There needs to be more of what's already there and it needs to be more complex for me to score it in the 80s. The bourbon is designed to compete with the entry level Jack Daniels and, from a quality standpoint, it does.
