Bottler: Brother's Bond Distilling Co.
Score: 90 points
Actors Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley bonded over their mutual love of Bourbon while making “The Vampire Diaries,” and have turned much of their focus since then to their Brother’s Bond Bourbon brand. They blend it themselves using four-year-old whiskey sourced from MGP, and the nose has notes of bananas, peach jam, brown sugar, honey, and toasted oak. The taste is sweet and fruity with subtle spices and touches of honey and vanilla, while the finish is long and fruity with just a hint of spice. (December, 2021)
