Brands, San Carlos, CA); 47.5% abv, $108. The early aroma highlights touches of caramel, oak barrel char and palm oil; further aeration yields a whopper of a mature, buttery bourbon bouquet. Palate entry shows incredible firmness, oil/cream and grain/wood presence; at midpalate the taste shifts into overdrive as sweet, sap-like flavors of caramel corn, maple sugar and roasted grain converge to make a sensational taste experience. Finishes sweet, intense and caramel-like. Superb. P.P.

What Is Blind Tasting?

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
