Starlight Distillery Old Rickhouse, 46%
Price: $35 ● Issue: Summer 2021 ● Reviewer: Ted Simmons
Aged at least 4 years. The nose is fruity with orange slices, cherries, and tangerines, but also floral and spicy with notes of honeysuckle and candied ginger. The palate is dry and nutty, with ample baking spice and more fruitiness: tangy citrus and flamed orange disc. Sweet cherries mingle with baking spice and dry oak on the finish. This demonstrates good balance and a lovely nose.
