DYC 10th Anniversary single malt, 40%

Price: $60.00 Issue: Summer 2011 Reviewer: Dominic Roskrow

Made entirely with Spanish barley and showing healthy progress, this 10 year old single malt is further proof that owner Beam Global is committed to producing quality Spanish single malt. But it has some way to go. This is a señorita, not a matador, and is far too polite — more like a blend than a single malt. Orange jelly, marzipan, and apple pip all make an appearance, but it's all too safe.
