Cask 88 Unfiltered 12 year old 2009 (Distilled at Glen Garioch), 59.4%

Price: $95 Issue: Winter 2021 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

This has a superb floral and honeyed intensity on the nose, with jasmine, honeysuckle, roasted peach, vanilla sponge, cream, and a smudge of spices. The refill bourbon barrel has produced a palate of baked orange, sweet grapefruit, lime juice, and penetrating spices, though the spices capitulate to reveal a juicy second act of clementine, papaya, bitter lemon, and grapefruit. Add water to boost the tropical fruitiness. (230 bottles)
