Villa No.16, 43%

Price: $80 Issue: Spring 2023 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Distilled in charentais stills by Maison Peyrat, matured in French and American oak casks, and finished in cognac and pineau casks, there’s plenty of tartness and refreshment on offer here. Grapefruit peel, Bramley apple, grist, candied lemon, and sour candies on the nose. A balance of sweetness, citrus, and spice makes for an easy-drinking dram with flavors of clementine, vanilla, barley sugar, ground pepper, clove, and ground ginger. (15,316 bottles; 1,500 for the U.S.)
