A notably dark, ruddy hue signals that this is going to be a robust sip. Aromas suggest deep toffee, dried cherry and oak. Add plenty of water to tame this overproof whiskey's intense heat, but know that gorgeous toffee dilutes to a mellower vanilla-honey profile. The bold, spicy finish echoes with cherry, cinnamon and clove. Kara Newman
