Jack Daniel's Tennessee Taster's Barrel Reunion #2 Oatmeal Stout Barrel-Finished Tennessee Whiskey (Selection No. 005), 46%

Price: $40/375 ml Issue: Summer 2020 Reviewer: David Fleming

An herbal, lightly malty nose starts with notes of sweet barrel char, cherry hard candy, raspberry pastilles, and a hint of green banana. The palate is rich, with flavors of chocolate and burnt espresso beans, bitter orange, pepper spice, and burnt almonds. The lengthy finish has notes of candied raspberries riding atop some deeper notes of allspice and pepper. Balanced and fruity overtones throughout, anchored by earthiness and spice underneath.
