Whiskey Del Bac Distiller's Cut Sauternes Cask Finished (Summer 2021), 57%

Price: $85 Issue: Fall 2021 Reviewer: David Fleming

A blend of the distillery's two flagship whiskeys, Dorado and Classic (both made from 100% mesquite-dried malt), finished in sauternes casks. Licorice, cedar, and sandalwood, with Del Bac's signature campfire and mesquite influence presiding. Powerful and chewy on the palate, led by lush flavors of blackberry tart, cooked peaches, figs, dark chocolate, and campfire smoke. A long finish offers more dark fruits, chocolate, and coffee. A big whiskey with plenty to savor. (751 bottles)
