Garrison Brothers Small Batch Texas Straight (2021 Release), 47%

Price: $85 Issue: Fall 2021 Reviewer: David Savona

Dark, with a slightly musty nose, this chewy bourbon has an underlying earthiness. There are flavors of spicy gingersnap, cinnamon, and toasted pecan, along with a medicinal note and some oak-forward astringency, which lead into caramel and vanilla on the finish. This is a drink of contrasts, showing pleasant malty notes along with some harshness, though in the end there is a general lack of harmony.
