New Deal Distiller's Reserve Oregon Straight Bourbon, 40%

Price: $40 Issue: Summer 2018 Reviewer: Jeffery Lindenmuth

Makes a pleasant first impression as sweet apple and corn notes meet summer flowers, Cracker Jack, and fresh oak. The palate shows a pleasingly oily texture, as butterscotch candy and roasted peanuts come with hints of spice and orange peel. The nutty finish shows toasted almonds and caramel.
