2016 Ultimate Spirits Challenge

Russell's Reserve 10 Years Old Bourbon (United States), 45% abv, $47.00

95
Extraordinary,
Ultimate Recommendation

Tasting Note:

Cherry and vanilla dominate the nose, with allusions to Bosch pear, honeysuckle, and clove. A pronounced oaky character on the palate gives way to toasted coconut, white pepper, stewed cherries ,and peach. A long, smooth burn on the finish is very welcome.
