Goldlys PX Finish Cask 2650, 43%

Price: $41 Issue: Fall 2015 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

The ‘Golden River' was nicknamed after the color of the River Lys due to rotting flax. Here, a cool, breezy nose of lemongrass and almond paste meets aromas of black currant conserve and blueberry muffin as the sherry flavors try to cut in. There are initial dark, jammy fruits hidden in warm bakery goods, with damson, bramble, and malt, swept aside by flavors of mint, antiseptic, and Fisherman's Friends. The finish is clean and icy cool with penetrating aniseed.€38
