Henry McKenna Single Barrel Bottled in Bond 10 year old, 50%
Price: $33 ● Issue: Summer 2016 ● Reviewer: Fred Minnick
One of the few remaining age-stated bourbons. Henry McKenna's color is beautiful. You can hold it up in sunset light and just enjoy the russet and amber hues reflecting. Sweetness, savory, and floral fragrances followed by brown sugar, fresh-baked rye bread, and malt. Caramel and vanilla, with roasted pine nuts and spice, and a slight hint of strawberry lead to a long and savory finish. Balance is the point of this sipper.
