Soldier Valley Omaha Beach Bourbon, 45%

Price: $55 Issue: Summer 2020 Reviewer: Susannah Skiver Barton

There are nostalgic bubble gum notes on the nose—Bazooka and Big League Chew—as well as orange sherbet, strawberry shortcake, cherry pie, snickerdoodles, and milk chocolate. Sweet and fruit-forward on the palate, with grape jelly, cherry preserves, chocolate, cinnamon, clove, and a hint of rose water. It finishes a bit short and soft, rolling out spiced oak and a bouquet of candied violets. (700 bottles)
