Tumblin' Dice Single Barrel Straight Bourbon (No. 10B), 58.7%

Price: $60 Issue: Spring 2021 Reviewer: Susannah Skiver Barton

Deeply complex from the start, with rich aromas of nuts, spice, cola, marzipan, vanilla frosting, and earthy leather and tobacco; with water, the maturity shows itself in the rancio note of solvent. Chewy and full-bodied in the mouth, with oodles of chocolate-covered nuts, coffee bean, cordial cherries, ground ginger, and white and black peppers. Water adds a light citrus note. The finish goes on for many minutes, still full in the mouth, with peppery and chocolaty oak dominating.
