Distillery 291 E Cherry and Peach Wine-Barrel Finished Bourbon (Batch 6), 61.3%

Price: $115 Issue: Summer 2020 Reviewer: David Fleming

The nose is earthy, chalky, and herbal, with notes of caramel and baking spice. The palate shows its proof well, with lots of balanced oak and bitter herbs, plus cherry and orange. The finish has flavors of bitter chocolate, coffee ice cream, burnt almond, dried orange slices, and a deft influence of toasted oak. This is a big, robust whiskey, with impressive complexity and plenty to like. (303 bottles)
