Jefferson's Reserve Pritchard Hill Cabernet Cask-Finished Bourbon, 45.1%

Price: $70 Issue: Fall 2019 Reviewer: Susannah Skiver Barton

Cherry bubble gum, white grape juice, hazelnuts, brown sugar, and rye bread on the nose. The palate is bright and gently spiced, with a soft, creamy texture and restrained grape, black tea, nut, and chocolate flavors. Coffee beans, nutty chocolate, and persistent oak on the finish. Surprisingly austere for a wine cask-finished bourbon, but to good effect.
