Price: $700 ● Issue: Fall 2022 ● Reviewer: Jonny McCormick
Matured in bourbon and oloroso sherry casks, this is intensely fruity, with attractive oak characteristics, apple pastries, honey, malt, pressed flowers, dried fruits, fresh pear, vanilla, and polished oak. Exceptionally smooth with balletic grace on the tongue, offering flavors of honey, sweet vanilla, tangy citrus, baked apples, creamy poached pear, and gentle cask spices. Vanilla pudding, malt, and hints of coffee and clove appear on the finish.
