Heaven's Door 26 year old Mizunara Cask-Finished Canadian Whisky (Bootleg Series Vol. 1), 55.75%

Price: $500 Issue: Spring 2020 Reviewer: David Fleming

The nose is minty and herbal, with a fragrant note of potpourri. It's powerful on the palate, with honey, coconut shavings, vanilla frosting, and spice. Lots of robust age on this one, with a finish that offers almonds, dark chocolate, vanilla cream, oak char, and good length. The barrel influence is strong, as would be expected from a whisky of this age, but is restrained enough to let the flavors emerge.
