90 points

Doc Swinson’s Cabernet Sauvignon Cask-Finished Bourbon, 46.2%

Bourbon/Tennessee  |  $50

A profusion of nutty aromas: freshly shelled peanuts, boiled peanuts, and buttered pecan lead the way, with candied cherries and molasses on toast emerging on the palate. There are also heaps of dusty, drying oak throughout, helping to balance the oily texture. Finishes with chocolate-covered cherries, blueberry pie, more peanut, and drying wood tannins.
