Blackadder Raw Cask Smoking Islay 10 year old, 59.3%

Price: $160 Issue: Winter 2021 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Tart lemon, cream soda, then a hurricane of peat smoke to bowl you over, supported by elements of serrano ham, salt-baked fish, and iodine. To taste, there is slice after slice of lemon, a little creamy sweetness to balance the tartness, then a lightning bolt of pepper, with flavors of lemon tart, malt, dried raspberry, hazelnut, and granola. If you're looking for an untamed Islay experience, look no further. (120 bottles, 72 for the U.S.)
