Price: $250 Issue: Summer 2020 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

This veteran from Knockdhu Distillery has been aged in a combination of bourbon and sherry casks. The nose is rich and inviting, with apricots in syrup, marzipan, caramel, and new-mown hay. Voluptuous in the mouth, with tangy fruits, barley sugar, cinnamon, sherry, and ultimately coffee grounds. An oaky finish with cocoa powder, white pepper, and lemon juice.
