Hickory Hill 12 year old Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Bourbon (Barrel No. 2), 45%

Price: $50 Issue: Winter 2018 Reviewer: Susannah Skiver Barton

Aromas of peanuts, sassafras, Cheerwine soda, nutty oak, and a sweep of cloves, allspice, and ginger, sprinkled with blackberries and cherries. There's zippy citrus on the palate, a nice lift of heavier oak, roasted nut, dark chocolate, and baking spice flavors. But the richness stops short on the finish, which is light and quick.
