1. CLYDE MAY’S STRAIGHT BOURBON 92 PF
This 5yr old non-chill filtered Straight Bourbon from Kentucky is an instant classic. Soft nose with hints of strawberry, baked apricot and nutmeg with a full mouth feel that finishes long and delicious.
2. BIB & TUCKER BOURBON
This Tennessee Bourbon contains Aromas of vanilla, freshly mowed grass and leather-bound books. Notes of sweet fruit, vanilla beans, caramel and dried apricots dominate the palate, and are complemented by a subtle touch of ginger spice. The finish is complex and lingers, with hints of chestnuts and corn.
3. JEFFERSON’S RESERVE BOURBON
This Kentucky bourbon has a smooth, not hot, aroma, with lots of vanilla and custard. The nose doesn’t lie; its’a all there, gentle and easy to hold on the tongue, though thre is some heat at the finish that curls around the custard. The oak dryness is surprisingly restrained for an older Bourbon.
