Benjamin Prichard's Tennessee Whiskey, 40%

Price: $45 Issue: Fall 2014 Reviewer: Geoffrey Kleinman

Although the Prichard distillery is located in Lincoln County, it has a special exemption from using the Lincoln County Process and isn't charcoal filtered. The nose reflects that with bright aromas including caramel, cinnamon, and oak. The entry is sweet caramel corn followed by soft cinnamon and black pepper with a boost from some oak. A medium, slightly dry finish completes a very flavorful but still extremely easy-drinking Tennessee whiskey. This is the crown jewel of the Prichard distillery line.
