Midleton Dair Ghaelach Knockrath Forest (Tree 3), 56.5%

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

A nose of oak, lemon meringue pie, lashings of vanilla, pink peppercorns, and paprika. It's particularly mouth-drawing at cask strength, offering vanilla, toffee, a slight nuttiness, and banana, with a clove spiciness that really takes hold. It keeps surging forward, finding different ways for the spices to peak before settling on a vanilla finish.
