Old Hickory Blended Bourbon, 40%

Price: $30 Issue: Winter 2015 Reviewer: Lew Bryson

A blend of two MGP bourbons, 11% 2 year old, 89% 4 year old. Simple sweet corn nose, with some cinnamon and hard candies; hot for 40%. Underwhelming for a whiskey named for President Jackson; warm and sweet, though with some oak-based bitterness at the fringes. Stays sweet through the finish. Not flawed, but not well thought-out either. Might be the blandest MGP juice I've ever had. Sourced whiskey.
