Knappogue Castle 12 year old Marco De Bartoli Marsala Cask-Finished, 46%

Price: $80 Issue: Fall 2019 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Aromas of green apples, zested lime, and caramel entice the senses with hints of banana peel and nuts. Succulent green apple, honey, and vanilla, this has a thick, syrupy, mouth-drawing palate. Baked pear and peppery spices continue into the finish. This expression feels recognizably part of the Knappogue Castle family, yet offers a more sophisticated and progressive take on finishing.
