    Written by

    Location: Oak Bar, Park Hyatt, Buenos Aires, Argentina

    Price: $ 250 Argentine Pesos ($12.36 USD)

    Recipe: No recipe but saw Bulliett Bourbon being poured

    Garnish: Lemon peel

    Comments: Was told it was best Manhattan in Buenos Aires but lacked punch (maybe to little bitters?) for me. A little too washed out on the rocks.

    Reisetbauer 1998

    This is number 3 of 3 samples I was sent by this distillery in exchange for a copy of 101 World Whiskies to Try Before You Die. This single malt was matured in white wine casks and bottled at 58% ABV.   The nose is similar to the other expressions; sweet and fruity with apricots and red apples. The taste is warm and needs a little water to calm down the alcohol which is drying. The water makes it smoother with creamy toffee, candied fruits and a little oak. The finish is balanced with some tobacco and spice.
