Dublin Liberties Keeper's Coin 16 year old, 46%

Price: $379 Issue: Summer 2019 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Mandarin segments, ripening lime, brown sugar breakfast pastries, cardamom, star anise, marzipan, and seasoned oak on this triple-distilled Irish single malt. It's fruity, sweet, full-bodied, and wonderfully rich thanks to the Pedro Ximénez finish. It glides from tangy orange to marmalade, with fruit-flavored hard candy, clove, and allspice. They've got this bang on. The spices shut down quickly on the finish, leaving baked peel flavors. €340
