Jefferson Reserve - Brown sugar (not to sweet), old wood cask, a little cinnamon and toasted grain. No bitter, sour, hot or alcohol distracters, just pleasant, admirable and easy to drink.

The rye and oaky dryness again dominate.

Aged wood and cigar box pull through and then linger for some time. 1oz/$14 ...... 2oz/$27
Wild Turkey Rare Breed - Dark Caramel in color. The nose is a rich velvety butterscotch with hints of cinnamon, honey, and oak in tow. Big rolling waves of caramel, cinnamon, vanilla, citrus, butterscotch, rye and honey all tumble around the palate and kick up notes of dark fruit, oak, clove and mint in their wake.

1oz/$5 ...... 2oz/$9
