Clyde May's Straight Bourbon
Clyde May's // Alabama, USA
Clyde May's Straight Bourbon Whiskey is made in homage to the brand's namesake, a man who was both a moonshiner as well as a careful craftsman. The release is a five year-old whiskey which was aged in heavily-charred barrels, bottled at 92 proof, and non-chilled filtered. Made from a mash bill of 78% corn, 12% rye, and 10% barley, it was first released in September 2016.

"The nose offers oak, vanilla, brown sugar, and apple crumb cake. The palate is fairly rich with sweet brown sugar upfront along with overripe apples. Additionally, a dry oak side with baking spice make their appearance. A big finish offers more sweetness and lingering brown sugar, with a spice that kicks in on at the tail end."
