"American Bourbon Whiskey does not come any finer, any more classical, any more enchanting than this breathtaking Vintage 1994. Much of its charm comes courtesy of the sinewy viscosity, the mesmerizing aroma, and the fathomless midpalate that offers flavor echoes of caramel, marzipan and honey. A world-class masterpiece."
