Dry Fly Cask and Release Series Beer Barrel-Finished Wheat Whiskey, 45%

Price: $50 Issue: Summer 2020 Reviewer: Susannah Skiver Barton

It opens with floral and fruit aromas: strawberries, peach blossoms, dried apple rings, mulberries, plums. There's also amaretto, dried ginger, licorice, and cacao nibs. Rich and a little hot on the palate, it's chewy with dry-roasted almonds, cracked walnuts, coffee bean, chai spice, and grilled plums. Mouthwatering on the finish, drawing out chile heat, black pepper spice, chocolate-covered coffee bean, and dry oak. (450 bottles)
