Lexington Bourbon. Photo courtesy Western Spirits.This Kentucky bourbon comes from an undisclosed distillery, and the nose is promising with spicy touches of cinnamon, black pepper, honey, vanilla, and toasted oak. However, in the same way race horses break well from the gate only to fade away from the leaders, this whiskey starts off watery and thin on the palate, followed by a one-dimensional cinnamon spiciness with a hint of caramel. The taste fades to a very short finish.  (April, 2013)
