Great Plains 18 year old Brandy Cask-Finished (Batch 1), 54.5%

Price: $91 Issue: Fall 2020 Reviewer: Davin de Kergommeaux

A year in brandy casks brings maple syrup, Fig Newtons, red grapes, and graham
crackers to a nose teeming with rye spices, dry fruits, and roses. The juicy Christmas
pudding palate turns hot and oily, with sweet butterscotch balancing bitter chocolate.
Pipe tobacco and oak tannins speak to maturity. As the long sweet finish fades, a
warming glow and lingering barrel tones move to the fore. $120 CAD
