Van Winkle Special Reserve Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, Lot “B”, 12-year

This remains just as amazing as it did the first time I tried it, which surprises me a little. I sort of expected that as my palate and knowledge of whiskies expanded that it might loose some of its magic. It hasn’t. There are other whiskies that I like better but I don’t like this one any less for it.

It has just the right balance of sweet and fruity and spicy and floral for me and continuously morphs in interesting ways if I decide to have it with ice.
