This is a Kentucky Bourbon aged three years in American oak, then finished in Cabernet Sauvignon casks from Napa Valley's Navigator. The end result is a mellow sipper, with bright aromas that suggest golden raisin and peach nectar. The palate has a Sherry-like quality, showing dried fruit and a floral hint, finishing long on almond and lemon. Kara Newman 

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.
