Alibi, 45%

Price: $24.00 Issue: Spring 2013 Reviewer: Lew Bryson

Alibi is a new blended whiskey: 27.5% 3 year old straight whiskeys, 72.5% GNS. A new American blended whiskey? Give it a whiff: hot caramel, a bit of fruit, and store-brand vanilla. It's hot in the mouth, sweet with more caramel and vanilla, fringed with cinnamon and oak. Not bad, but it's squeezed at its $24 price by perfectly good straight bourbons.
