Celtic Cask Aon Déag 11, 46%

Price: $136 Issue: Fall 2015 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

A 14 year old unpeated single malt whiskey given The Celtic Whiskey Shop's trademark Ànima Negra red wine finish for 3 years. The nose has whiffs of fruit gums and honey-drizzled baked plums. A well-defined fruity attack on the palate of strawberry bubblegum and orange peel sucks in the cheeks, but collides with spices, maltiness, and gentle caramels. A spicy burst ushers in cola flavors for a lengthy finish, with a touch of mint showing up late for the party.€125
