Waterford Single Farm Origin Rathclogh Edition 1.1, 50%

Price: $95 Issue: Winter 2020 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick




Orange and grapefruit aromas, with rosewater, vanilla cream, bergamot oil, and dry barley notes, though the nose also detects the high alcohol and some youthful notes. The flavor coalesces around clove and pepper, but en route there are sweet barley cereal notes, chocolate, and malt. After a prolonged swarm of spice, the finish has malted milk and old chocolate.
