Mister Sam Tribute, 66.9%

Price: $250 Issue: Summer 2019 Reviewer: Davin de Kergommeaux

The first annual release of Sazerac's finest old Canadian and American whiskies blended at barrel strength. The nose presents memories of long-closed whisky warehouses, old books, and artist's oil paint. Prunes, dates, figs, chocolate-covered cherries, a cobbler's shop, vague cloves, lilacs, brown sugar, and warming spices on the palate. Ultra-complex, rich, creamy, and fruity. Hot and mouth-watering with billows of vanilla, creamy caramel, and mincemeat. (1,200 bottles for the U.S. and Canada only) Collectible
