Virginia Highland Malt Whisky, 46%

Price: $60 Issue: Spring 2017 Reviewer: John Hansell

Malt whisky from the Scottish Highlands finished in Virginia, in Virginia wine casks. A potpourri of red fruit (raspberry, currant, cherry), tangerine, caramel, honey, and marzipan. Polished leather, tobacco, and oak on the finish. The port influence smooths out the rough edges nicely and adds depth to this youthful, lively whisky. (Loch & K(e)y exclusive)
