“Be just, honest, honorable, and magnanimous to your fellow man … “ words to live by, and lived by they were if you take a glimpse into the history of Joseph Magnus, founder and legacy builder of Jos. A. Magnus & Co. For over 125 years, Joseph Magnus has become one of the most celebrated and enthralling bourbon craftsmen in the world – and their Magnus Reserve 16 year old straight whiskey (750ml) lives up to that extremely exceptional standard without a moment’s hesitation. A blend of 16 year old and 18 year old bourbon, this limited release of 192 92 proof bottles ranks very high on the wish list of the collectors everywhere. Your nose picks up ribbons of honey and vanilla melting into dark wood. The tongue is soothed and blanketed in richly decadent flavors of ripe cherry, dark stone fruit, and bright citrus zest blended with vanilla bean. Freshly scythed hits of honeyed hay and a haze of smoky tobacco glide in to whisper the finish of a truly classic bourbon whisky. Joseph A Magnus may be long gone from this world, but his legacy of perfectly blended liquor will live on in the bottles, glasses, and savoring mouths of whiskey tasters for years to come.
