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.
