Jack Ryan The Centenary Single Barrel 15 year old, 57.5%

Price: $110 Issue: Spring 2016 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Warmed honey oozing over toasted English muffins, with dry spices and a twist of clementine peel. There's a cool, clean freshness too. A satiny texture with an immediate wave of flavor engulfs the tongue; a big hit of citrus peel, not fruit, is joined by vanilla softness and a hint of nuttiness. This citrus turns delectably tangy and hangs in there, no matter how diluted it becomes. The tanginess persists into the long, lush, warming finish.
