Rowan's Creek, Batch 03-59, 12 year old, 50.05%

Price: $40.00 Issue: Summer 2005 Reviewer: John Hansell

Beautifully balanced, like Kentucky Vintage, but more complex and with greater depth. It’s also not as boldly dry as Pure Kentucky XO. Rather, it is softer and more seductive. This is splendid bourbon! It would be a shame to adulterate this bourbon in any way-don’t even think of mixing it. Find yourself a quiet moment, pour yourself a measure, and savor.
