Union Horse Distilling Reserve Straight Bourbon (Batch 1), 46%

Price: $37 Issue: Fall 2016 Reviewer: Jeffery Lindenmuth

Aged up to 5 years, this whiskey serves up lots of fresh, oaky sawdust with its caramel and toffee, along with some varnish notes. Aromas of spice and smoke lead to a palate of butterscotch, smooth and oily in texture, with robust, warming spice and a dry, leathery, and tannic finish. Nice maturity and polish for the price.
