#14 Whisky Advocate Top 20 Whiskies of 2021
2021 San Francisco World Spirits Competition Gold Medal Winner
Named for the finery one would wear for special occasions back in the day, the six-year-aged Bib & Tucker bourbon has a nose of antiques, new saddle leather, chamomile-soaked butterscotch drops and warm cinnamon-kissed cedar. If that doesn’t bring up images of Americana, the flavor profile mirrors the nose, urging on that sense of peace, harmony balance: all the good things you taste and should feel while sipping a great bourbon.
Fresh herbs greet the nose, followed by notes of marmalade, birthday cake, roasted peanuts, and musty antique shop. Well-tempered sweetness on the palate—a basketful of fresh blueberries, fresh peaches and golden raisins—with lemon iced tea, root beer, sugared espresso, and generous spice. A rich finish offers coffee ice cream, dark chocolate, allspice, French toast, and sweet banana. A superbly structured, complex whiskey that makes for very easy sipping.
