Kirkland Signature Sour Mash, 40%

Price: $25 Issue: Winter 2020 Reviewer: David Fleming

Lemon grove, bananas and cream, blackberry jam, coconut flakes, and brown sugar on the nose, with black tea and a chalky mineral back note. The palate is soft and round, with notes of whipped cream, cooked blueberries, gentle nuttiness, peppermint, and allspice. The finish is subtle in profile but has good length, offering pleasant spice, dark chocolate, red berries, and mellow oak. Balanced spice and lively fruit make for some pleasant sipping.
