High Coast Dálvve Spanish Oak, 48%

Price: $65 Issue: Spring 2021 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Marmalade, vanilla, brittle toffee, cream, dried red fruits, red currant, dates, and wafts of floral scents, flecked with ground pepper and a little chile heat. The sherry wood flavors are polished, delicious, and really deliver: honey, marmalade, baked orange, and candied peel, it rides a crest of active spices, then runny caramel, canned peaches, and raisin, leaving the gums tingling with residual spices.
