High Coast Dálvve Sherry Influence, 48%

Price: $59 Issue: Spring 2019 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

This punchy U.S. debut is a smokier affair than their recent output, with aromas of campfire embers, cigar smoke, vanilla custard, bread-and-butter pudding, and cooked red gooseberry; this is calming, aromatic smoke associated with good times. Sipping reveals flavors of fresh raspberry, cinnamon, nutmeg, and chocolate, before a wave of smoke and caramel toffee. The tandem partnership of smoke and sherry is phenomenally good.
