Aberfeldy 18 year old French Red Wine Cask-Finished (Batch 2920), 43%

Price: $120 Issue: Winter 2020 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

Creamy on the nose, with malt, toasted cereal, white pepper, nutmeg, and, ultimately, mulled wine. A substantial mouthfeel, with honey, slightly smoky red wine notes, raspberry jam, and fruit spice. The finish is long, with spicy dark chocolate and warm spices that really linger. (Individual reviewer rating: 90)
