Parker's Heritage Collection 2018 Orange Curaçao Finished, 55%

Price: $90 Issue: Winter 2018 Reviewer: Jeffery Lindenmuth

This is sure to be a divisive edition, but once you open your mind to the idea, it's hard to argue with the titillating aromas and seductive sweetness that curaçao casks bring. Resembling a bourbon liqueur, the nose is replete with tangerine, orange peel, tropical fruit, and nougat. The palate circles back to classic bourbon notes that manage to find balance with the candied orange nose.
