Rock Town Arkansas Young Bourbon, 46%

Price: $35 Issue: Fall 2012 Reviewer: Lew Bryson

Smells sweet and minty, with gobs of oak and corn…and that's about how it tastes, too. The corn sweetness and the mint are dominant, but warming oak spice wraps it loosely. It's called “Young Bourbon” (labeled as “age under 4 years”), and that's just what it tastes like, as some green youthful notes muscle their way in toward the finish. A bit of a rough-rider, but tasty.
