Five & 20 Spirits Straight Bourbon recently received a high rating of 93 points along with a Best Buy designation from Wine Enthusiast.
Wine Enthusiast reviewer Kara Newman writes, “The first sips offer oak, toffee and clove, accented with a hint of dark fruit. Adding water brings out lighter, nuttier flavors, pleasantly suggesting peanut brittle, brown butter, caramel corn and maple.”
