The latest release in the Anthology series is a 13-year-old Islay single malt fully matured in a combination of ex-bourbon and Sauternes casks. The result is a burnished gold hue and aromas of peat smoke and iodine that mingle with almond. The palate opens with chewy almond-nougat notes, plus toothsome vanilla bean. What starts as a modest amount of peat smoke turns to billowing embers with repeated sips: think vanilla-cream pie sitting in a smokehouse. New release August 2023. Kara Newman 

What Is Blind Tasting?

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
