Moonlight Mayhem Extended Cut Cask Strength, 57.5%

Price: $80 Issue: Winter 2022 Reviewer: Julia Higgins

The nose is enticing, pulling you in with hazelnuts, powdered sugar, cinnamon doughnut, maple syrup, red berries, hot chocolate, and chocolate-covered Bing cherries. Those flavors follow on the palate, and chocolate becomes the real star here—rich cocoa powder and chocolate-dipped red berries lead the charge. A hot dash of cinnamon spice lingers pleasantly throughout. The finish is creamy and well-spiced, and adds just a touch of leather to the mix.
