Black Eagle Honey, 35%

Price: $12 Issue: Fall 2013 Reviewer: Lew Bryson

Odd aroma, more like a weedy, aromatic bark than honey; wonder what the bees were gathering from? Very sweet, on the rich and cloying side, but without the real honey character that makes Jack Daniel's Honey the best of this bunch, and I can't get over the aroma. The only saving grace is that even at 35%, the bourbon still manages to peek through; it's not enough.
