Price: $200 Issue: Winter 2021 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Sweet and smoky sherry wood, like the woodsmoke from charred butts, partnered with aromas of cinnamon, nutmeg, black cherry, malt loaf, and a hint of coffee grounds. This is a midnight dram, full of character and intrigue; a thick syrupy mouthfeel with black currant, cherry Dr. Pepper, clove, pepper, and black coffee, followed by Brazil nut, cassis, oak, and smoke. A lengthy, dark fruity finish sees you through till morning.
