American Highway Reserve Route 2 Blend of Straights, 49%

Price: $100 Issue: Fall 2022 Reviewer: Julia Higgins


The nose is a bit of a trip, veering from vanilla extract and bread pudding in one moment to lemon soda and orange peel in the next. A more saccharine palate homes in on powdered sugar, creme brûlée, vanilla latte, and sundae cherries. The finish goes on and on, and it emphasizes the entire citrus-meets-sweet experience thanks to notes of lemon zest and simple syrup. (60,000 bottles)
