Kirkland 18 year old Sherry Cask Finish Speyside, 46%

Price: $54 Issue: Winter 2018 Reviewer: Susannah Skiver Barton

Another Kirkland with evident sherry: raisins, figs, sugared almonds, leather, and pistachio-studded chocolate show up in full force, along with a note of rancio indicating its age. Additional flavors of nougat, orange oil, candied violets, and ginger swish into a full, rounded finish that settles in for a lengthy stay. This comes from the same undisclosed distillery as Kirkland's 20 year old. (Costco)
