10th Street Distiller's Cut Peated, 44%

Price: $65 Issue: Fall 2020 Reviewer: Susannah Skiver Barton

Made using cuts that emphasize its peat and malt notes, this starts off with a nose of brine, seaweed, and iodine, but there's a captivating, tempting tropical fruitiness too. On the palate, that tropical note shows up fleetingly as blueberry and pomegranate, with peat continuing to commandeer the ship into an ashy finish of coffee bean, black pepper, and dark chocolate.
