Tasting Notes

"The phrase "high-rye bourbon" is a popular one these days, so a new one coming in at 100-proof is bound to pique interest. The David Nicholson Reserve is strikingly well-balanced, with neither too much spice nor off-putting oak. It has just the amount of vanilla with a hint of char and a long, sweet finish. It would make a delightful Old Fashioned or Manhattan, and is also very enjoyable sipped neat."
