Loch Lomond 2002 Kerr Cellars Red Wine Cask-Finished, 48.1%

Price: $200 Issue: Fall 2019 Reviewer: Susannah Skiver Barton

Delicately aromatic and tropical on the nose, with piña colada, pistachio pudding, almond halva, coconut, and apple blossom. The palate is elegant and pretty, nuanced with pistachio, almond, vanilla malted milkshake, coconut, and pineapple, before sweeping oak and tobacco roll into a gorgeous tropical fruit and toasted coconut finish. A masterwork in balancing spirit character with finishing cask.
