Jailers Premium Tennessee Whiskey, 43%

Price: $25 ● Issue: Fall 2012 ● Reviewer: Lew Bryson

Sweet corn and dried cherries on the nose; pleasantly, quirkily intense. The palate is clean, sweet with corn and a hint of those cherries, framed by oak, and leads to a finish with no surprises: corn, oak, and a slight clench of heat. It's almost predictable: there are no real flaws, but there's no greatness, either. Still, solid delivery is a good thing. (sourced whiskey) —LB
