Dry Fly 3 year old Cask Strength, 60%

Price: $50 Issue: Winter 2022 Reviewer: David Fleming

Fresh pine forest on the nose, with water bringing out sweet notes of vanilla custard, marzipan, and honeycomb. A smooth palate offers vanilla, pomegranate, cherry pie, and chocolate bar. It’s a hot one, and definitely needs water. The lengthy finish is the best part, with rolling notes of chocolate accented by hints of tobacco leaf, cigar wrapper, espresso, and mature oak. A big, oak-nurtured chocolate delight with depth and integration.
