With a distinctly nutty aroma, this silky single malt opens with concentrated pecan pie and maple, evolving into dried dates and figs. It finishes with hints of orange peel and cinnamon tingle. Would be a dynamite dessert pairing. Aged in ex-bourbon casks for six years and finished in casks that previously held ruby port and amontillado sherry, as well as virgin French oak casks. Limited edition. 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.
