Two Stacks The Blender's Cut Cask-Strength, 65%

Price: $60 Issue: Spring 2021 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

A roasted, slightly smoky rendering of pot still spices rises to the top, accompanied by a nose of chocolate brownies, new pencils, and dried dates. The mouth signals this as a contender for Ireland's strongest whiskey: red apple and baked peach concentrate on the palate, a whirl of spices shows flashes of green chiles and hot pepper sauce, leaving flavors of nutty wheat bread and milk chocolate. Exposed flames prohibited. (6,000 bottles)
