Stalk and Barrel Cask 12, 63.2%

Price: $92 Issue: Summer 2014 Reviewer: Davin de Kergommeaux

Still Waters distillery's owners invited customers to select their next single cask release. Noting the soft cereal notes, stewed apples and raisins, and hot spices in an oily body, they recommended this one. A fruity nose with barrel tones and icing sugar blossoms in the glass while the hot, spicy palate shows hints of licorice, cloves, and vanilla. A good dash of water mollifies a drying tendency without dampening the flavor or creaminess. (Distillery only) C$100
