Kaiyo The Sheri Mizunara Oak Finished (First Edition), 46%

Price: $129 Issue: Spring 2020 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Don't get me wrong, this is delicious, but while the mizunara oak subtleties cannot match the intensity of the sherry influence on the nose, its flavor contribution to this multidimensional whisky is rather wonderful. Strawberry, sherry, fig, prune, and nuts on the nose and palate, enriched with fragrant spices, millionaire's shortbread, vanilla tablet, base notes of pepper, and a finish of sherry, fig, and spice.
