Yellowstone 9 year old Limited Edition Kentucky Straight (2019 Release), 50.5%

Price: $100 Issue: Spring 2020 Reviewer: Jeffery Lindenmuth

There's a bounty of nuts here—almond, walnut, and pecan—along with vanilla, nougat, poached pear, and some beeswax notes. Initially the palate is citrus-loaded, with zesty grapefruit peel and cut orange wedges, but it quickly succumbs to drying oak tannins, showing a bit of heat as toasty oak, bitter chocolate, and cinnamon carry the finish.
