Rabbit Hole Heigold Kentucky Straight Bourbon, 47.5%

Price: $70 Issue: Winter 2019 Reviewer: Susannah Skiver Barton

Aromas of root beer, cooked cherries, candied orange, licorice, cloves, iced tea, spearmint, marshmallow Peeps, and a hint of varnish. The palate is chewy and full, with flavors tumbling over each other in a rush: orange, cinnamon, clove, licorice, horehound, oak, almonds, vanilla cream, and a bit of herbaceousness. It finishes dry, with bright fruit, cedary oak, cinnamon, and almonds.
