Kentucky Owl Rye 11 year old (Batch 1), 55.3%

Price: $130 Issue: Summer 2018 Reviewer: Fred Minnick

Just beautiful. Long, rounded notes of caramel, cinnamon roll, taffy, butterscotch, brisket burnt ends, nutmeg, Jamaican jerk, plum pudding, ginger, light sassafras, root beer, roasted marshmallow, cotton candy, orange peel, raw honey, and pie crust. If it sounds complex, it's because it is, and the finish just doesn't quit, giving you a lingering taste of every note.
