A Bourbon from wine country? Yes! This is one in a series of yearly small-batch releases celebrating “California Bourbon.” Made from corn, rye and cherry-smoked malted barley, look for a toasty brioche aroma and herbaceous accents. On the palate, it's dry and pleasantly light, suggesting cedar, tea, honey, baking spice and oak. A subtly smoky note emerges after the whiskey sits for a while. Consider mixing a boulevardier, with sweet vermouth and Campari.
