The Busker Triple Cask Triple Smooth, 40%

Price: $25 Issue: Winter 2020 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Royal Oak Distillery's flagship has a nose of ripe mango, dried apple rings, vanilla, and fine spice, with a curious additional note somewhere between pencil erasers and a tire repair kit. Its light-bodied frame showcases apple pie, sweet cream, caramel, gingerbread, custard, and vanilla. Although no prizes for guessing this is a blend of malt, grain, and single pot still whiskeys, it is refreshing and easy to drink.
