American Oak Small Batch American Whiskey (Batch 1), 40%

Price: $33 Issue: Summer 2020 Reviewer: Susannah Skiver Barton

Youthful and light, with aromas of vanilla-scented candle, coconut, pastry cream, almond shell, and prominent alcohol. The palate is nearly neutral, showing reticent flavors of vanilla, butterscotch pudding, and lemon cake, with the alcohol again quite evident. The finish is barely there: a bit of toasted oak and wood sugar.
