Whiskey Del Bac Distiller's Cut Cask-Strength American Single Malt, 58.15%

Price: $85 Issue: Spring 2020 Reviewer: Jeffery Lindenmuth

Dark tobacco, horehound, saddle leather, mesquite smoke, and dried fruits rightly suggest the intensity to come from this Arizona malt. The robust palate features grilled corn, heaps of char, and savory smoked meats, with a burnt-sugar note that is both bitter and sweet. This is bold and flavor-packed, like drinking a glass of brisket. The no-holds-barred finish displays campfire smoke, milk chocolate, and burning citrus oil. (1,650 bottles)
