"This is a superbly complex whiskey from Bardstown Bourbon Company, expertly tempering the heat of its high proof with oaky sweetness. Notes of cherry, almond, and white pepper come through on the palate, with lingering hints of marzipan and cinnamon. Wine barrel finishes on bourbon can be a mixed bag, but this one proves the collaboration can be worthwhile."
