Kentucky Vintage, Batch 03-65, 45%

Price: $25.00 Issue: Summer 2005 Reviewer: John Hansell

Clean and uncomplicated bourbon. Creamy sweet layers of vanilla, caramel, and toffee are underpinned by soft citrus fruit, gentle mint, teaberry, and delicate oak. Here’s a bourbon certainly good enough to drink on its own, but you won’t feel guilty throwing it in a mixed drink. Nice for everyday drinking.
