McKenzie Straight Bourbon, 45.5%

Price: $43 Issue: Spring 2019 Reviewer: Susannah Skiver Barton

Vibrantly fruity with strawberry and orange Creamsicle on the nose, along with clean hay, toasted oak, cinnamon, caramel, and bay leaf. Wood spices on the front palate give way to orange custard, pomegranate, caramel, and cinnamon bread notes, with a pop of chili-dusted roasted corn lashed with bitter oak on the finish.
