Firestone & Robertson TX Tawny Port Cask-Finished Texas Bourbon, 50.8%

Price: $65 Issue: Spring 2021 Reviewer: Susannah Skiver Barton

Sugar cookie dough, dried apple rings, iced tea, and an unconventional aroma of amaretto on the nose. The palate is spiced and chewy and full of grain character, well-balanced by blackberries, bittersweet apples, dried cherries, grated ginger, chile-chocolate, barrel char, and a touch of savory umami. Tobacco, coffee bean, savory oak, and tingling pepper on the finish.
