This limited-edition malt comes primarily from refill bourbon casks with some sherry casks, and has the color of 18-carat gold. The nose is figs, honey, and blueberries, with just a hint of vanilla, but it doesn’t give a hint of what’s to come. The taste is intense and minty, with a touch of apples and pears that leads to a long and tingly finish that reminds me of cookie dough baking in the oven. An outstanding dram!
