Glenrothes Bourbon Cask Reserve, 40%

Price: $50 Issue: Winter 2020 Reviewer: Susannah Skiver Barton

Sweet, with a touch of saline on the nose: almond cream, lemon curd, fresh coconut, kumquat, and vanilla salt water taffy. The palate is soft and velvety, with apples and pears, toffee, a sprinkling of grapefruit and kumquat, and a touch of guava. Lingering sweetness on the finish, though it fades quickly. Water doesn't do it any favors; taste this neat.
