Firestone & Robertson TX Straight Bourbon, 45%

Price: $50 Issue: Fall 2019 Reviewer: Susannah Skiver Barton

Led by raw grain and new oak on the nose, it also has aromas of cedar, spiced almonds, green banana, and marshmallow. The palate shows plenty of wood, with pulling tannins, as well as black pepper, vanilla, orange, and bitter almond. It's more oak and grain on the finish, which fades quickly. Some promising qualities here, but this whiskey needs more time in the barrel.
