Old Line Double Oak Series Sherry Cask, 50%
Price: $65 ● Issue: Summer 2021 ● Reviewer: Susannah Skiver Barton
The nose presents a complex, almost condensed array of aromas: cantaloupe, vanilla, Rocket Pop, raspberry jam, sandalwood, tobacco leaf, fancy mixed nuts, and incense. Equally complex and layered on the palate, which highlights herbal and delicate spice notes of clove, mint, cedar, sandalwood, and black pepper, along with dark fruit—raspberry, blackberry, grape—and roasted nuts. Cacao nibs, Andes mint chocolates, clove, nutmeg, and charred oak overflow on the lengthy finish.
