Square 6 Kentucky Straight, 47.5%

Price: $90 Issue: Winter 2021 Reviewer: Ted Simmons

Distilled at The Evan Williams Bourbon Experience in Louisville. The nose is vegetal, grassy, and youthful, with new leather, lead pencil, seaweed, lime peel, and with water added, blueberry pancakes. There's more fruitiness on the palate, which is creamy with plenty of heat and notes of raisins, molasses, and dried herbs. The finish is short and briny, with new wood alongside hints of chocolate and blackberry. Well-constructed if a bit hot and wood-forward.
