Stein Distillery Big Buck Blend

Best American Blended 2014

Cherries, hazelnuts, almond paste (not marzipan) on the nose. Burnished oak, bitter almonds and lush rolling toasted cereals. Juicy and medium wood in the finish. Seáneen Sullivan

Pungent, oily and youthful. Lightly oily palate, opening with caramel and a touch of malt. Very grainy with the oak coming through on the finish. Chris Goodrum

Rye spice leads with cinnamon and a sweetness coming through. Baking pastry with sugar and spices. Cat Spencer

Soft fruit, baked oranges and tinned peaches backed up by wet sand and wet sawdust wood. More spice on the palate and the orange bitters. Wooden crates of oranges on a hot day. Michael Lord
