This is a 10 year bourbon from Smooth Ambler that was selected by Binny’s and bottled at 58.8% ABV.
Nose: Quite sweet with lofty, rich grain notes. Almost strikes me as wheated with brown sugar, candy corn, and toffee notes.
Palate: A bit of anise, mild oak, and dark chocolate covered cherries.
Finish: Plenty of heat with sweet grains and mild oak.
Rating: 84/100 – I like this one better than the Spring selection Binny’s did – strikes more of the sweeter notes I like in these single barrels.
Value for the money: These are sold out, but I believe original retail was around $65. I would buy a bottle of this particular bottling at that price.
