Lexington Kentucky Bourbon Review

Producer: Western Spirits. Distiller: Three Springs Bottling. 43% ABV.  NAS. Price: $28.

A most recent random selection and one that has pleased immensely. Seemingly well regarded — they tout their 95-point rating from The Tasting Panel Magazine, which is affiliated with the San Francisco World Spirits Competition — though online reviews seem to be mixed.

A subtle nose of molasses. Notes of caramel and vanilla, if you get though the initial burn and let it sit on the tongue. A slowly enveloping warmth at the finish. It starts young and impudently and finishes as a friend. – TM
