Wathen's Single Barrel

I picked up this nice sipper during our family vacation at Rohoboth Beach Delaware.  There are two things that that don't have in Delaware.  Sales tax and shade.

Wathen's is made with eight generations of blah, blah, blah.  I find this one to be very spicy with a lot of oak.  You'd think that a bold bourbon like this would make a nice Manhattan, but it can't stand up to even a splash of Noilly Pratt.  Weird.

Still, it's a nice sipper.
