Pennington Distilling Co. Davidson Reserve Rye, 50%
Price: $60 ● Issue: Fall 2018 ● Reviewer: Susannah Skiver Barton
Though it takes some easing into, this whiskey shows pretty clove and vanilla notes on the nose, along with some Elmer's glue and grape Kool-Aid. The palate is where the rye grain starts to shine, with spice, peaches, plums, and milk and white chocolate, and cooked cherries on the finish. Water is a must to cut through the youthful heat.
