Fukano 14 year old Single Cask Rice Whisky (No. 213), 44.2%

Price: $150 Issue: Winter 2019 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Stewed gooseberry, scallions, chopped chives, fine-ground pepper, rolled oats, and sweet oak combine to create a sweet and herbal dram. Full-bodied on the palate, this boasts stewed fruits, brown sugar, cooked apple, and delicious baked desserts. Drawn from a specially selected new oak cask, this Fukano is the most interesting of the brand's 2019 releases. (487 bottles)
