Wolves Wally's Blend, 52%

Price: $160 Issue: Winter 2020 Reviewer: Susannah Skiver Barton

The nose indicates the partial base of whiskey distilled from beer (it's blended with straight rye) right away, with citrusy pine aromas, as well as brown sugar, milk chocolate, almond nougat, and peanut brittle. The palate has a mineral quality, dry with chamomile and tobacco, but remains true to the lemon and pine essence that the nose outlines. There's also dark-roast coffee, chocolate, black pepper, and tea leaf. Medium-length on the finish, with consistent lemon, chocolate, coffee, and oak flavors. (900 bottles)
