Flash review: Henry McKenna Single Barrel 10 Year Bottled-in-Bond
Flash reviews are written when I just want to enjoy a whiskey. These are quick nosing and tasting notes, not a full review. As such, flash reviews will never be scored. Use them only to get a quick idea whether or not this whiskey has characteristics that interest you.
Barrel 3221, bottled 9-14-16
Nose: caramel-coated peanut, like your favorite part of Cracker Jack, cinnamony rye
Flavor: nutmeg-forward yielding to caramel but with a nice cinnamon balance. Hints of orange peel. Short, crisp finish with a whisp of oak.
Impression: just plain tasty and dangerously quaffable. And at less than $30 per bottle, it’s hard to pass up the last age statement, bonded bourbon.
