Old Fourth Distillery Bottled in Bond Straight (Barrel 20), 50%

Price: $50 Issue: Fall 2019 Reviewer: Susannah Skiver Barton

Roasted corn, peanut butter, vanilla extract, orange wedges, root beer, and licorice on the nose. The palate is oak-driven, chewy, and dense, carrying along an herbaceous streak that showcases dill, cedar, licorice, and black pepper, as well as peanuts, orange oil, and roasted corn. A few drops of water showcase the grain and nuts to even better advantage. Distilled in Indiana and aged in Georgia.
