This is a 27-year-old bourbon that by all rights, should taste like the inside of a barrel stave. It’s anything but, and has the vibrancy and taste of whiskies half its age. The color is dark bronze, and the nose is silky and sweet with hints of caramel and vanilla. The taste is amazingly balanced and smooth…sweet without being too sweet…and dry without being too dry! The only words I can use to describe the finish…lingering, cloying, and tantalizing. Buy this one while you can!
