Sweetens Cove 13 year old Tennessee Straight (Batch 1), 51.09%

Price: $200 Issue: Fall 2020 Reviewer: David Fleming

Created by master blender Marianne Eaves for a group led by former NFL star Peyton Manning and tennis great Andy Roddick. Aromas of breakfast cereal, bananas, dried strawberries, leather, and integrated oak on the nose, and a smooth palate of Grape Nuts, allspice, bitter chocolate, pipe tobacco, and earthiness. The finish offers powdered sugar, cracked pepper, and baking spice. Future releases of Sweetens Cove are planned—very good news indeed. (14,000 bottles)
