Adnams Triple Malt, 47%

Price: $49 Issue: Winter 2019 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Made from a mash of malted wheat, malted barley, and malted oats, this evokes chocolate orange, with hints of lemon and grapefruit, toasted coconut, ground ginger, clove, peppercorn, and cantaloupe. Toffee, sweet and tangy satsuma, a dash of clove, chocolate-dipped lemon biscuits, and a hint of oak astringency usher in a finish of bitter peel oils and ground pepper. Try a splash of water to accentuate the bitter orange notes. £37
