Year after year the annual Yellowstone Limited Edition releases have yet to disappoint. For this year’s edition, master distiller Steve Beam sought to finish the bourbon with the goal of adding layers of depth and complexity. 2020’s edition is finished for an undisclosed amount of time in used French Armagnac Casks, possibly contributing to the light fruity characteristics prominent throughout the sip. Overall the finished bourbon is delicate and subtle. With a fair degree of complexity it leaves little to dislike, and as a result, I would certainly recommend buying a bottle to satisfy your limited release craving. With that being said it is very gentle overall, and I would love to taste this at a higher proof and with longer time in the Armagnac casks.
