Longhorn Texas Straight (Batch 54203), 40%

Price: $27 Issue: Fall 2021 Reviewer: Ted Simmons

Hay-like in color. The nose has maritime notes of seaweed along with York Peppermint Pattie, wood shavings, and dunnage warehouse. Aromas improve over time, with lime, orange peel, vanilla cream, and a hint of leather. The palate is silky with bitter chocolate and new wood. With water, peppery spice, black currant, and cooked pears. The finish is fairly short. At a minimum of 2 years old this shows its youth and wood influence.
