Price: $320 Issue: Summer 2020 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Cranberry, watermelon, and cherry, with deeper notes of raisin and prune, are lanced by piercing spices. There's a thick and heavy mouthfeel that begins with caramel and vanilla, sliding into chewy toffee with coffee notes and a hint of raspberry, though harried by peppery spices so sharp they taste spiky.
