Lot No. 40 11 year old cask strength, 58.4%

Price: $75 Issue: Spring 2019 Reviewer: Davin de Kergommeaux

Vanilla, honey, and caramel accented by baking spices and dark fruits on a complex nose. Water opens up a blisteringly spicy palate, revealing gorgeous clean grains, dusty rye, and citrus hints hidden underneath. Not as floral as earlier iterations, and with fewer typical sour rye notes. Baking spices dominate the vanilla-sweet palate, which finishes with sweet peppery spiciness. Perfect for cask-strength fanatics with patience and an eyedropper. C$100
