Blue Note Juke Joint Straight Bourbon, 46.5%

Price: $30 Issue: Fall 2020 Reviewer: Jeffery Lindenmuth

An easy drinker, with typical caramel and vanilla notes tinged with herbal flavors of horehound and pine boughs. Nicely balances bright fruit and sweetness with generous rye spice, suggesting an oatmeal cookie with vanilla frosting. While not overly complex, flavors are nicely integrated with charred oak.
