Forty Creek Three Grain Twentieth Anniversary, 40%

Price: $38 Issue: Fall 2020 Reviewer: Davin de Kergommeaux

This final reprise of one of Forty Creek's original whiskies is one juicy, succulent
dram. Fruity hints of red grapes on the nose mingle with sherry-sweetened pipe
tobacco and herbal earthiness. Sizzling peppers bolster a palate rich in nutty waxy
barley, soft oily corn, and dry dusty rye. Suggestions of halva and citrus zest lead into
a long, briskly spicy herbal finish.
