Chicken Cock Double Barrel 10 year old, 52%
Price: $250 ● Issue: Spring 2019 ● Reviewer: David Fleming
The Double Barrel name denotes the fact that each batch is a blend from only two barrels. Fragrant notes of warm cinnamon bread, raisins, banana, and clove on the nose, along with toasty oak and old leather. A new burst of flavors on the palate reveals cocoa powder, spice cake, coconut, creamy chocolate, cinnamon, and chili pepper. A long finish of rich chocolate, almond, and a delicate hint of blackberry.
