Braddock Oak Single Barrel (Batch #T517K6), 46%

Price: $40 Issue: Winter 2018 Reviewer: Susannah Skiver Barton

With spearmint, licorice, dried flowers, cedar, and new oak on the nose, it's no surprise to taste a wood-forward palate. Iced tea with orange peel, spearmint, grain, sweet cedar, and drying oak lead into a finish of menthol, dark cocoa, and shoe polish. Youthful, with some rough edges, but enjoyable. Distilled by Catoctin Creek from 100% rye. (Total Wine & More)
