The Lost Distillery Company Gerston (batch 2/1), 46%

Price: $65 Issue: Summer 2015 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

A pale primrose of a dram. Waxed lemon, salted butter pats, white peach, honey, and the wood smoke from green stems. A sip brings Highland toffee, honey, chocolate fudge, rich tart fruits, with dried apple, raisin, mixed peel, and a late appearance of malt, pepper, and smoke. It wraps up with a glossy, clingy finish, but it's short. Experimenting with water nudges peanut brittle, pralines, and fudge to the surface. Overall, a very decent drop.
