Virginia-Highland Port Finished Malt Whisky, 46%

Price: $58 Issue: Summer 2016 Reviewer: Lew Bryson

Scottish Highland malt whisky (from an undisclosed source; no age given), finished in Virginia, in Virginia port barrels. Rich port fumes hit the nose, malt's in the background. Well-behaved in the mouth, not overly hot or obviously youthful, and the malt's oily and luscious, with a nice port wrapper. Finish is cleanly integrated, without any heavy wood. Nice whiskey, interesting idea. Sourced whiskey.
