J.J. Corry The Gael (Batch 2), 46%

Price: $80 Issue: Fall 2020 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Blended from select stocks by Irish whiskey bonder Louise McGuane, this new batch has a fine combination of aromas of lemon, white flowers, lychee, peach, lime, grapefruit peel, white pepper, sliced cucumber, and cold-pressed olive oil. Initially mouth drawing, it has a medium-weight, silky, buttery texture that explores melon, vanilla, pepper, cream-filled doughnuts, and sweet banana, with lemon and nimble spices on the finish.
