Paul John Classic Select Cask, 55.2%

Price: $92 Issue: Summer 2015 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Sticky, spiced-coconut desserts, grapefruit, clove, allspice, and crispy bacon on the nose of this NAS whisky matured in bourbon casks. Sharp with lime, grapefruit, and lemon zest that settle down to green fruits, Jell-O, and dry spices. Do dilute, as water lets the spices leap from the glass, strips down the acidic attack, and accentuates the fresh apple and cinnamon. It doesn't need much water, but it's eminently better with a dash.£63
