Dogfish Head Alternate Takes Vol. 2: Palo Santo Marron Ale Cask-Finished Whiskey, 45%

Price: $50 Issue: Spring 2020 Reviewer: David Fleming

The nose is herbal, with notes of bitter lime, lemon peel, hops, peppermint, green apple, and hints of salinity. The mouthfeel is smooth, with flavors of honey, chocolate cake, and cinnamon, plus notes of lemon blossom, confectioners' sugar, and baking spice. A long finish offers vanilla cream and crackling bitter herbs. Light and fruity—sometimes almost tropical—with a grip of appealing spice on the finish. (6,000 bottles)
