Thomas H. Handy Rye (2015 Buffalo Trace Antique Collection), 64.96%

Price: $80 Issue: Winter 2015 Reviewer: John Hansell

Distilled in 2008, this is always the youngest whiskey in the Collection. The boldest and spiciest too! A blast of mint, clove, and cinnamon leads the spice charge, with fig, dates, caramel-coated nuts, vanilla, and candied fruit. Well-integrated flavors, and a smart balance of youth and maturity.
