Omar Bourbon Cask Single Malt, 46%

Price: $80 Issue: Fall 2019 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Dried banana, curry powder, chopped cilantro, and creamed coconut on the nose, but there's a note of oak astringency and a scent of menthol toothpaste as well. With crème caramel, banana, dried apricot, and candy sweetness, the whisky has a good weight in the mouth, and builds to flavors of tangerine, with perky peppery spices under the tongue. Lengthy finish of banana taffy and a shower of spice.
