Top 10 Bourbon The Bourbon starts with corn and rye, is aged in American white oak barrels for four to six years, and then aged for three to six additional months in port casks. Displaying a luminous gold-copper color, this newcomer to the Bourbon world exhibits a light, playful flavor on the tongue followed by a long finish with hints of orange zest, making it both seductive and accessible to those wary of whiskey. Price: $43
Top 10 Bourbon Blanton's Original Single Barrel Bourbon The reddish-amber Bourbon has a lovely jolt of orange zest and burnt sugar on the palate. Exuding flavors, one sip feels like it fills our entire mouth. Price: $45
Top 10 Bourbon On the palate, Black Maple Hill is sweet as Bourbons can be, but in a masculine sort of way, like maple syrup enjoyed by a lumberjack. It has a supple mouthfeel, filling the mouth with sweet and satisfying honey-tinged flavor, and a finish that seems to never end. It's so smooth, there's no need for ice. Despite its 95-proof strength, there's not a hint of burn even when enjoyed neat. We can't wait to meet her 21-year-old sister. Price: $125
This is phenomenal. If you love your whiskeys (Tennessee, Bourbon, or Scotch) this one is a must. Smooth from start to finish, with a mild Gin like flavor initially and finishes with bold rye and oak after notes. This whiskey is packed with elegant flavor and is in my top 5 now... sorry Knob Creek.
