Berry Bros. & Rudd Classic Range Peated Cask Matured, 44.2%

Price: $40 Issue: Summer 2019 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

A pale blend with hidden depths of flavor and a sweet nose of honeyed pear, vanilla, Golden Delicious apples, taffy, and custard tarts, all overlaid with ashy smoke and drifting smoke trails from snuffed-out candles. Pear, apple, clove, and cracked black pepper meet butter toffee, vanilla, and nippy spices. It's imbued with a pretty smoky flavor for a peated cask, and leaves a creamy aftertaste to savor. £32
