An easy, elegant sipper, look for a gentle vanilla-caramel-almond profile on the nose and palate as well as a silky feel. Mild baked pear and dried apricot midpalate wind into a cinnamon and clove finish. Sip or mix.

Brown-Forman deployed a triple-cask finishing process on mature sourced whiskeys, involving virgin oak, refill, and sherry casks. A lovely fruity complexity ensues, with blackberry, apple-toffee notes, malt, vanilla, and sherry influences. Butterscotch with nutty undertones, herbal notes verging toward spicy, and hints of dried apple, red berries, and a touch of leather roll into the finish. You want complexity, intrigue, and flavor for thirty bucks? Look no further.
