Cooper's Legacy Bourbon, 50%

Price: $65 Issue: Summer 2017 Reviewer: Jeffery Lindenmuth

Very oaky, with a nose of fresh sawdust, but beneath lurk deep maple sweetness, pralines, and cherry cough drop. The palate is chewy, sweet, and nutty, with pleasing caramel and butterscotch, but is hurt by some peculiar varnish and furniture polish notes. Finishes with cherry, leather, and more oak.
