Te Bheag Blended Whisky, 40%

Price: $40 ● Issue: Fall 2013 ● Reviewer: Dominic Roskrow

Pronounced β€œTe Veg,” this has its roots in the Isle of Skye, and as there's only one distillery there it's highly likely that the odd
drop of Talisker has found its way into the mix. Whether it has or not, this is stirring stuff, non-chill filtered so that the flavors burst forth. As you might expect, it's rugged with brine and chili, giving it a distinctive spice edge. But the delivery is a caramel fudge delight, with luxury chocolate praline in there too.
