Tumblin' Dice 4 year old Single Barrel Barrel-Proof Straight Bourbon (No. 1), 57.85%

Price: $59 Issue: Summer 2020 Reviewer: Susannah Skiver Barton

The nose is redolent of tea leaves, peach skin, herbal honey throat lozenges, blueberries, brown sugar, licorice, and toasted grain. More herbaceousness hits on the palate, cooling some of the cinnamon spice of the high proof with spearmint and licorice notes; add water, and nuttiness emerges. Continued herbal flavors into the finish, which also has citrus oil and peppery spice. Strong barrel character throughout. (5,500 bottles)
