Spirit of America Bourbon, 43%

Price: $40 Issue: Winter 2015 Reviewer: Lew Bryson

More MGP whiskey: 2 years old, 51% corn, 45% wheat, 5% malt. That's a lot of wheat, and you can smell it: soft, sweet, even a bit doughy, with a little mint candy. Extremely smooth, but not insipid; there's some nice oak backbone here, a good weight, and a solid center of corn. Craftsmanlike. And $1 from every bottle goes to veterans programs. Sourced whiskey.
