Ohishi Port Cask-Finished (2020 Release), 42.4%

Price: $90 Issue: Winter 2020 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick




Baked oat cookie, walnut, allspice, and a hint of rosehip, though the aromas become quite spicy in time, crackling with ground ginger and pepper. The palate has a mouth-drawing, heavy texture and tastes joyously like a liquid toffee apple after two years in the port cask. Supported by flavors of cake mix, sultana, and gentle spices, it has a dry finish of fading fruit and chocolate cake. (1,490 bottles)
