Cocktail Colin says:

4/5

Kentucky Peach subtly plays bourbon's warmth against the fresh, ripe sweetness of peach, accentuated by a hint of iced tea and aromatic bitters. A pleasing cocktail that cleverly pairs whiskey’s complexity with stone fruit’s natural sugars and the refreshing character of iced tea.
