Bond & Lillard Kentucky Straight, 50%

Price: $50/375ml. Issue: Summer 2019 Reviewer: Susannah Skiver Barton

Part of Wild Turkey's Whiskey Barons Collection, which re-creates brands lost during Prohibition. A blend of 4 and 6 year old charcoal-filtered bourbons, with a nose of cereal, vanilla, lemon cake, orange, and baking spice. The palate brings out vanilla, caramel, cinnamon, walnuts, peach pie, licorice, pipe tobacco, and a halo of chili pepper. The finish has kick and heat, with notes of honey, lemon, chocolate, and spicy oak.
