Montgomery American Single Malt 3 year old, 45%

Price: $46 Issue: Spring 2017 Reviewer: Jeffery Lindenmuth

Campfire smoke, fusel notes, green twigs, and rhum agricole give a rustic edge to this big and broad-shouldered whiskey. Full-bodied with an attitude, the sweet clover honey, oily character, and lingering burnt sugar bitterness feel a bit disjointed. Pot distilled and aged in charred oak for 3 years.
