Brown-Forman’s annual limited-edition King of Kentucky is an uncut, unfiltered Bourbon, and the sixth release has touches of tobacco and leather on the nose, along with charred oak, dark chocolate, coconut, vanilla, and dark fruits. The taste is dry and astringent with oak tannins, dark chocolate, and hints of black tea and coconut. The finish is long with touches of coconut, dark chocolate, and oak tannins. (October, 2023)
