Ranger Creek .36 Single Barrel Bourbon. Image courtesy Ranger Creek Distillery.This is the San Antonio distillery’s first Straight Bourbon, aged 3 years and 8 months in full-size barrels. The nose has a nice oakiness, along with notes of molasses, brown sugar, vanilla, wet leather, and a hint of allspice. The taste has a good balance of spices with chili powder, black pepper, and a hint of cinnamon fading to reveal honey, vanilla, a hint of peaches, oak, and tobacco notes. The finish is mouth-watering, long, and spicy. Very nice! (January, 2015)
