Popcorn Sutton Barrel Finished, 46%

Price: $50 Issue: Summer 2016 Reviewer: Lew Bryson

“Spirits distilled from grain and sugar” on the label, and the word “whiskey” is nowhere to be seen, but we've stretched the definition before; and this stuff tasted okay unaged. Smells like oak candy wrapped in fresh leaves. A bit hot, but like warm cereal on the tongue, and the oak fills in the back. Sippable, and likely to make a good Old-Fashioned as well.
