Stalk & Barrel Blue Label Blend (tweaked), 40%

Price: $33 Issue: Spring 2017 Reviewer: Davin de Kergommeaux

Amping up the original Blue has pushed this blend of own-distilled flavoring and sourced base whiskies deep into sipping territory. Crème brûlée and a soft vanilla nose become Werther's caramels, until Still Waters' signature rye spices and white pepper take charge. Add water and it blooms like a flower, dampening the spices and leaving a round, creamy, chocolate-like mouthfeel.
