Spirits of French Lick Lee W. Sinclair Four Grain Straight Bourbon, 45%

Price: $45 Issue: Summer 2019 Reviewer: Susannah Skiver Barton

Made with an unusual mashbill—corn, wheat, caramel malt, and oats—this whiskey was aged for 2 years. Grain, bread dough, almond paste, and a hint of cinnamon on the nose. The palate has fresh wood shavings, cinnamon, bread dough, orange Popsicle, and walnuts, with a dry chocolate and oak finish. A bit more maturation time should soften some of the youthful edges.
