Bottler: Mount Vernon
Score: 82 points
This is a rare vatting of bourbons from most of America’s largest distillers to celebrate the restoration of Washington’s distillery at Mount Vernon. It’s only sold at the Mount Vernon gift shop, and the nose is classic vanilla, caramel, and oak. The taste is black pepper, vanilla, oak, and honey, and the finish is honey and caramel. Lacks overall balance, but remember that this was never intended to be a mass-market product.
