Price: $80 Issue: Fall 2021 Reviewer: David Savona

Don't be fooled by the gentle honeysuckle aroma coming from this whiskey—it's a powerhouse. From the first sip there's a sensory overload of bold, zingy flavor. There's a caramel core buried deep inside, with layers of oak, bracing licorice, chile oil, and a long spicy finish. This is a lip-smacking dram, one best suited as the final one of the night, a memorable toast to a day well spent.
