Trader Joe's Kentucky Straight Bourbon, 45%

Price: $17 Issue: Winter 2018 Reviewer: Susannah Skiver Barton

The nose is innocuous, with some cinnamon, herbal iced tea, sweet oranges, cedar, and dry oak. Sweet and wood-forward on the palate, it is also drying and hot, with herbal tea, orange oil, chocolate, cinnamon, and cherry cough syrup. While there are flavors to enjoy here, they seem to need more time to fully develop. (Trader Joe's)
