FEW Bourbon, 46.5%
Price: $50 ● Issue: Winter 2017 ● Reviewer: Jeffery Lindenmuth
There is a freshness to the wood on the nose, laced with caramel and delicate minty notes. The palate pours pleasantly chewy with molten butterscotch and offers a pleasant jolt of cinnamon and clove that suggests rye at work, before settling on bitter orange peel, salted caramel, and cocoa, leading to a drying leathery and warm spice finish. Nicely done.
