Garrison Brothers Texas Straight Bourbon. Photo ©2014 by Mark Gillespie.Garrison Brothers releases two batches of its Bourbon each year in the spring and fall, and the Spring 2013 release has a nose that’s earthy with fresh-turned garden soil, clove, honey, and hints of brown sugar and vanilla. The taste is bold and spicy with cayenne, chili peppers, cinnamon, and clove balanced by hints of vanilla, dark chocolate, and nuts that come out as the spices start to fade. The finish is dry and spicy with cayenne, honey, and dark chocolate notes. Very nice. (May, 2014)
