Midleton Dair Ghaelach Knockrath Forest (Tree 4), 56.1%

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

Heavy on the oak and spices, this has aromas of a carpentry shop, with salt and pepper, steak rub, and a touch of red fruit buried deep in the glass. It has quite a mouthfeel at cask strength; one of those whiskeys that makes your teeth squeaky. Vanilla, banana, and nicely balanced between the slowly unraveling spices, hazelnut, and oakiness.
