Kentucky Peerless Double Oak II Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Bourbon (No. 150718105), 53.95%

Price: $35 Issue: Summer 2020 Reviewer: David Fleming

A nose of confectioners' sugar and peach tart, as well as Toblerone, cherry cola, roasted almonds, barrel char, leather, and drying oak. More baking spice on the palate, melding with chocolate syrup, savory notes of roasted nuts and charred corn, pepper, and perfumed oak. Earthy notes emerge with water, along with spice and chocolate. An herbal finish offers flavors of cherry tart, light chocolate, and spice. Very tasty, and with plenty of panache.
