Pinhook 4 year old Bourbon War Straight Bourbon, 49%

Price: $45 Issue: Spring 2020 Reviewer: Susannah Skiver Barton

A rather innocuous bourbon, it shows some of the pep that its namesake racehorse surely shares, with aromas of banana pudding, banana peel, lemon, vanilla, cloves, licorice, cherry hard candy, and cornbread. There's zingy lemon and orange, rose oil, vanilla, cherry, and some herbal flavors on the palate, with more banana peel, candied fruit, and lemon oil on the finish.
