Sons of Liberty Uprising Pedro Ximénez Sherry Finish (Batch 2), 46%

Price: $30 Issue: Fall 2016 Reviewer: Jeffery Lindenmuth

The nose of this mahogany-hued ‘single-malt' portends dense and chewy flavors of brown sugar, dates, and toasted walnuts. It's a bit fiery on the palate, where it unleashes a rush of dried fruits, smoke, and spice. While some raw spirit character peeks through, this unconventional whiskey holds appeal for its originality, with a stout-like crescendo of coffee and mocha on the very long finish.
