Oft beloved for his vigor and his sting like a bee, our friend Thomas Handy has never been twee. With a high barrel proof and at six years of age, he'll present like a lion escaped from his cage. But this year's is less angry and piquant than most, with a nose filled with bubblegum and cinnamon toast. The palate starts sweet, and rather than heat, you'll find raisins and berries, a decadent treat. And then oranges and currant, with a cherry on top, this usual brute is really rather a fop! But lest that should fool you don't forget this is rye, and at the very tail end the spice rack is nigh. Anise and pepper and a twinge of some herb, if you thought this was bourbon all the sudden you're curbed. It may take you unready, but still leave you impressed, because while this vintage is strange it may be one of Tom's best.
