Old Line 8 year old Golden Edition American Single Malt, 50%

Price: $95 Issue: Spring 2020 Reviewer: David Fleming

Bitter and dry with a hint of charred oak on the nose, along with dried apricots, lemon iced tea, and candied orange slices. The palate starts with drying oak tannins but is balanced, offering black cherry pie, mint, cloves, baked apple, spiced chocolate, and cinnamon. The finish has hints of oak char, chocolate, caramel, dark fruit, and a burst of baking spice at the end. A delicious sipping whiskey. (200 bottles)
