Blue Note 9 year old Straight Bourbon, 46.5%

Price: $53 Issue: Fall 2020 Reviewer: Jeffery Lindenmuth

A kind of luscious sweetness appears up front, as pecan pie, glazed banana chips, dried pineapple, dates, and green apple candies meet gentle spice. The maturity is really lovely, with sweet waxy notes of honeycomb, and a palate that smacks of chewy nougat, milk chocolate, and toasted nuts, ending with cinnamon and peppercorn spice; the oak is perfectly restrained.
