Label 5 Bourbon Barrel, 40%

Price: $19 Issue: Winter 2020 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

How wonderful it is to have this single grain whisky added to the Label 5 range of blends! A heavy waft of vanilla essence, toffee, toasted nuts, and wood spice, but there is a clear grain character, no mistake: chopped herbs, perfume notes, mint leaf, and a whiff of nail polish remover on the nose. Light-bodied and delicious, with toffee, nuts, coconut macaroon, maple syrup, ground hazelnut, and oak char, with a nutty toffee finish. Best Value
