Old Bones 15 year old Reserve Straight (Batch 1), 53.5%

Price: $130 Issue: Summer 2021 Reviewer: Ted Simmons




Distilled in Kentucky from a mashbill of 78% corn, 13% rye, and 9% malted barley, the nose showcases notes of orange peel, butterscotch, flan, and honey-roasted peanuts. The palate is tart and acidic; orange marmalade and lemon peel, with loads of nuts and spices. Even with water added, dried citrus peel and roasted nuts break through. The finish is mouthwatering, with tingling spice and rich oak. Well-balanced and flavorful with density and dimension. (1,290 bottles)
