Clyde May's Cask Strength 8 year old, 58.5%

Price: $90 Issue: Spring 2017 Reviewer: Fred Minnick

Rich and rounded vanilla, baking spices, caramel, and cast iron-baked cornbread straight from the oven. Hints of smoke, dried apricot, fresh-cut grass, and tilled earth. Then, raw honey, marzipan, raisins, and sweet oats, followed by baking spices for a medium to long finish. It's very nice and needs no dilution to open up. Think of this as a high-proof sipper.
