Doc 52 Straight Bourbon Whiskey, 55%

Price: $50 Issue: Summer 2018 Reviewer: Adam Polonski

On the nose, cherry tart baked over a fireplace: rich red fruit with a whiff of soot and some chalky minerality. A lot of warmth on the palate, with biscotti, almond, toffee, and warm caramel apple topped with sweet vanilla cream, and chocolate ganache on the side. Good, creamy texture, with some sharp peppery tinges. A 9 year old Tennessee bourbon selected by and bottled for Doc's Wine, Spirits and More in Memphis, Tennessee. (152 bottles)
