Springbank Refill Sherry 17 year old, 57%

Price: $200 Issue: Fall 2013 Reviewer: John Hansell

Even with a refill sherry cask, bright fruit is the main theme to this whisky: strawberry-rhubarb pie, red raspberry preserve, red currant. But there's honeyed malt for balance, along with suggestions of

coconut macaroon, marzipan, brine, and glazed ginger to keep things interesting. Distinctive. (U.S. exclusive)
