Lucky Seven 12 year old The Hold Up Kentucky Straight Bourbon (Batch 01), 50%

Price: $99 Issue: Summer 2020 Reviewer: Susannah Skiver Barton

Minty dark chocolate, maple syrup, iced tea, dark berries, tobacco barn, peanuts, and leather on the nose. The palate is chock-full of rich fruit—blackberry jam, plums in syrup, black cherries—and luscious dark chocolate, with well-integrated oak, leather, maple syrup drizzle, and overtones of herbs. It's consistent into the finish, with cooked fruit, leather, mint and other herbal flavors, and plenty of chocolate. (2,500 bottles)
