Great Wagon Road RUA American Single Malt (release 6, batch 10), 40%

Price: $47 Issue: Winter 2016 Reviewer: Jeffery Lindenmuth

There is a certain rusticity here, with a nose rooted in rhum agricole, sweet malt, honeycomb, butterscotch, and molasses, tinged with furniture polish and varnish notes. The palate is sweet and candied, with Bit-O-Honey, circus peanuts, and nougat, turning a touch chocolatey on the finish.
