Vintage Bourbon, 17 year old, 47%

Price: $50.00 Issue: Summer 2006 Reviewer: John Hansell

Notes of "rummy" molasses, Sugar Daddies, red currant, citrus peel, sandalwood, polished leather, and vanilla cream. Subtle, teasing black licorice and brittle mint emerge from time to time. Well-balanced, with all the flavors sharing the limelight. A beautiful example of mature bourbon.
