Bower Hill Special Edition Sherry Cask Finished Straight, 50%

Price: $95 Issue: Fall 2021 Reviewer: David Fleming

Red berry and cherry hard candy aromas are anchored by oak and earthy smells of the rickhouse. Water unlocks a vanilla sweetness that lingers, plus distinct notes of orange peel and mint. The palate is spiced and smooth, with more orange and red berry, as well as bitter chocolate and pepper spice. Musty oak balanced by raisins, figs, cinnamon, and allspice on a finish that shows maturity and a solid structure.
