Bulleit Blenders' Select Kentucky Straight Bourbon (Batch 001), 50%

Price: $50 Issue: Summer 2020 Reviewer: Susannah Skiver Barton

The nose shows great maturity, with varnish, leather couch, black cherry syrup, dark chocolate, and wet walnuts. There's a pleasant tartness to the palate, like just-ripe cherries, along with the richness of chocolate torte, blackberry jam, birch syrup, Concord grape jelly, and leathery oak. It finishes with lengthy cherry syrup, high-end dark chocolate, and more varnish and leather. Editor's Choice
