Rod & Rifle Straight Bourbon, 40%

Price: $30 Issue: Winter 2013 Reviewer: Lew Bryson

Green corn, cooked corn, roasted corn, all tumbling over each other in the nose. Very sweet, young bourbon without much drying from the oak, but no youthful fire. Tastes like a lower row barrel. Finish is also sweet. Not a lot of complexity. Sourced whiskey, from Dickel.
