Red River Single Barrel Bourbon, 48.4%

Price: $40 Issue: Spring 2015 Reviewer: Lew Bryson

Light brown sugar, orange candy, and cinnamon on the nose, along with just a hint of funk. Electric in the mouth, zapping out to every corner and tooth with bitter oils and hot alcohol, with a backing wall of corn sweetness. The finish is almost a relief. Take the rattlesnake graphic as a warning; this one's not kidding.
