Joseph Magnus Cigar Blend, 56.5%
Price: $149 ● Issue: Winter 2018 ● Reviewer: David Fleming
This blend of bourbons includes 11 year old and 18 year old liquid finished in armagnac, sherry, and cognac casks. Toasted oak, cinnamon apples, clove, blueberries, and vanilla cake on the nose, followed by a palate of chocolate cream pie, brown sugar, and more apple, cinnamon, and blueberry. Long and rich on a silky finish, with a final note of tobacco leaf atop chocolate, cinnamon, and cherry. A whiskey that combines power and finesse.
