G. Rozelieures Subtil Collection, 40%

Price: $60 Issue: Spring 2020 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Although G. Rozelieures makes several peated whiskies, this is an unpeated single malt, with notes of honey, sherbet, summer flowers, ears of barley, buttery biscuits, and black peppercorn. Matured in French oak, bourbon, and cognac casks; the balance is superb, with honey, icing sugar, vanilla, apple Danish, and spicy oak, leading to caramel and baked apple in custard. The substantial mouthfeel and serene transition of flavors make this heavenly to drink.
