Hatfield & McCoy, 40%

Price: $39 Issue: Winter 2014 Reviewer: Lew Bryson

Caramel, brown sugar, vanilla, generic sweetness. Smooth entry, and more of the same on the tongue with some alcohol heat in the finish. Very little wood at all. Begging to be poured into Coke. Maybe most jarring is that the Hatfield & McCoy “brand” recalls the infamous feud that took place on the Kentucky-West Virginia border…while this was distilled in South Carolina. At least the label's honest as far as that. Sourced whiskey.
