"Whereas Penelope's Straight Bourbon aims at being light and approachable, their barrel strength brings a little more oomph. It's spicy and full-bodied, with vanilla up front that gives way to hazelnut and charred oak. A few drops of water brings out its fruitier notes, with hints of baked apple. This strong bourbon would stand up well to a large ice cube or a straightforward Manhattan."
